The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research


The search for the cure for Parkinson's disease is a cause near and dear to the RaceTrac family. Since our partnership began in 2011, our guests have helped us raise more than $4.6 million for The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research through our annual 5K race and store-level fundraising efforts.

As a part of our RaceTrac Gives Back initiative, each year in April during Parkinson's Awareness Month our guests have the option to add $1 to their purchases and/or buy a $1 candy bar. During one week in April, all coffee proceeds are donated directly to the cause.

Additionally, we hold the RaceTrac’s Run for Research 5K event in Atlanta each year to raise funds for the Foundation. RaceTrac’s Run for Research takes place at Truist Park, home of our partners the Atlanta Braves.
