Mike Freed is preparing for his sixth annual charity Tallahassee-to-Jacksonville Freed to Run marathon series in November. With $1.9 million raised to date, Freed to Run 6.0 needs $350,000 in additional contributions to fully endow the Northeast Florida Medical Legal Partnership and enable Jacksonville Area Legal Aid to provide free legal aid to qualifying pediatric patients and their families in perpetuity.

As Gunster shareholder Mike Freed prepares for his sixth annual Tallahassee-to-Jacksonville Freed to Run trek November 14-19, he is counting on the support of a group of community leaders to take his namesake event across its ultimate fundraising finish line of $2.25 million.

With $1.9 million raised to date, Freed to Run 6.0 needs $350,000 in additional contributions to fully endow the Northeast Florida Medical Legal Partnership and enable Jacksonville Area Legal Aid to provide free legal aid to qualifying pediatric patients and their families in perpetuity. All donations are matched at 125% by Baptist Health Jacksonville, up to a total of $1.25 million, so if other sponsors and donors can come up with $155,000, Baptist would contribute the remaining $193,750, enabling Freed to Run to reach the endowment goal.
