Welcome to My Page

Lara Langweiler

From my photos, you can probably tell that I’m a big fan of hiking and nature. But what my pictures can't show you is the profound effect that working for MJFF has had on my life. Now I have the chance to combine my love of the outdoors, my love of conquering challenging terrain, and my love of philanthropy to earn money and bring attention to Parkinson's by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in August 2017.

Since beginning a new career with The Michael J. Fox Foundation, I have learned so much about Parkinson’s and the PD community. Five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson's disease - a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone.

Through the Foundation and Team Fox (see more about Team Fox below), I have been able to work directly with patients, caregivers, and researchers and have seen firsthand the urgency for a cure.

Please help us find a cure by making a donation to such an important cause. No donation is too small and every cent is appreciated.

Thank you for donating or sharing this page!

Team Fox is the grassroots community fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF). MJFF accelerates high-impact science through smart risk taking and problem solving with a commitment to urgency and efficiency. I’m one of thousands of people around the globe who are turning their passions into Team Fox fundraisers to help them speed a cure for Parkinson’s. When you give today, 100 percent of Team Fox proceeds go straight to MJFF’s programmatic efforts.
