An estimated five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease — the second most common brain disease. My beloved husband Keith was diagnosed with PD in 2006, and over time, he lost his mobility, lost his cognition, and ultimately lost his life. He succumbed to this horrible disease in November of 2017.

In participating in this event, my hope is that someday no one will ever again have to suffer this terrible disease, and that no family will ever again have to watch someone they love be taken away from them inch by debilitating inch.

In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no cure for Parkinson’s disease…yet. Help us change that.

Your gift will make a real difference: 100 percent of the Shake It Off 5k for Parkinson's Research proceeds will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s high-impact research programs.

If you knew Keith, please consider helping us close the gap on a cure by making a donation today in his honor and memory! No amount is too small -- every little bit helps!

Thank you! - Marti
