The Nike Mag draw was a massive success.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research is reporting that they raised $6.75 million through the Nike Mag draw and two auctions in Hong Kong and London. The one Nike Mag in Hong Kong went for $104,000, but a majority of the millions were raised by those of you who entered the $10 Nike Mag draw via Nike+.

So even if you weren't one of the lucky 89 Nike Mag winners, at least you contributed to an awesome cause that raised an astounding amount of money for Parkinson's Research.

On the final day of the raffle drawing, The Michael J Fox Foundation announced that they would match, dollar for dollar, any donation made, though it's unclear how much the organization put up before the raffle closed. 

The $6.75 million raised for the Michael J. Fox Foundation eclipses the $5.69 million raised during the 2011 auction of the Nike Mag, and there's still one final auction going down in New York City on November 12th.
