The 19th Annual MK5K raises funds directly benefiting the Mary Kay Ash Foundation in support of its two-fold mission, finding cures for cancers affecting women and ending domestic violence. Founded in 1996, the Mary Kay Ash Foundation is the legacy of Mary Kay Ash’s vision to create a healthier, safer world for women through causes that are near and dear to her heart. The Foundation does this by providing critical grants to support cancer research and domestic violence as well as programs and support services for both causes. Today, the Foundation has impacted millions of women and their families’ lives by donating more than $92 million in grants, programs and support services. In 2023, the Foundation will award 60 domestic violence shelter grants and 12 cancer research grants domestically totaling $2.4 million this year alone.
The 19th Annual MK5K engages generous sponsors, local community partners, independent sales force members and the public to bring together an exciting group of supporters running for a great cause! With the city of Addison as its backdrop, the MK5K brings out a vibrant crowd for some early morning fun. If running isn’t your thing, enjoy the vendor exhibits, live music, photo opportunities, and breakfast thanks to the generosity of local community partners and sponsors.
For those who are unable to attend in person, the fun continues virtually from October 1-13 with our MK5K My Way Virtual Challenge. Run, walk, swim, bike, Zumba your way into 13 miles over 13 days to complete the challenge and meet your fundraising goals.
