The event is meant for anyone and everyone and is organized to provide a fun and relaxing atmosphere for all participants. The event will promote awareness of children affected by X and Y chromosomal variations and will allow the community to learn about and discuss these disorders!

The DeXY's Fun Run will begin at 7:35AM followed by the 4K at 8:00AM. All participants will receive a medal. Free parking will be available on Municipal Drive in Chapel Hill courtesy of Carolina North Forest Management.

This decision may be made at any time up to and including the day of the event. In the event of a reschedule, an alternate date will be announced on or before the scheduled race day.

Please Note: No Pets, and No Refunds.

Organized by the team at The Focus Foundation and the volunteer directors from the local community.
