About This Activity

The annual Mac Pact 5k takes place in the historic town of Durham.  Most people know Durham for the infamous Durham Fairgrounds.  As a participant you will be running through the fairgrounds.

The Mac Pact was initially set up to raise awareness of Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS).  Our daughter, Mackenzie, was diagnosed at four weeks old.  Our goal is to help other families affected by this disorder.  PWS affects approximately 1 in 20,000 which has developmentally and cognitive delays, low muscle tone, failure to thrive, etc.  However, the hallmark of the disorder is that an individual with PWS will NEVER feel full.  The brain does not let the stomach know it has eaten enough.  Raising a special needs child has it's obstacles and we want to be there to help them every step of the way.

Your registration fee is 100% tax deductible and we are happy you have decided to take part in this amazing day.

Event details and schedule

Registration will start at 9am.  Our goal is to kick off the 5k race at 10am, 1k walk at 10:45 and a fun kids race at 11am.  Parking is available on site and volunteers will direct you.  Please make sure to sign the online waiver.
