Nike's draw for its self-lacing Mag sneakers has so far raised $6.75 million for The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF), which funds research for the development of a cure for Parkinson's disease. The sports brand and MJFF made the sneakers available to the public through an online draw that ran from Oct. 4-11. Each entry required a $10 donation to the foundation, with each entry granting equal opportunity to win a pair of the Nike Mag. In addition, one pair was auctioned live in Hong Kong on Oct. 11, and another pair was auctioned in London on Oct. 14. A third live auction will be held in New York on Nov. 12, at the foundation's benefit gala, where the 89th and last pair of the limited-edition sneakers will be auctioned to the highest bidder. The Nike Mag first appeared three decades ago in the “Back To The Future II” film, where it was worn by Michael J. Fox. The actor, who owns the first pair of the self-lacing shoes, founded his eponymous foundation in 2000 after disclosing he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's at the age of 29. Through two events generating worldwide interest in 2011 and 2016, Nike has now raised a total or more than $16 million for MJFF, according to the foundation.
