BIG ED BOWL is back, and you’re invited! Big Ed Bowl started as a grassroots fundraising event 14 years ago to honor our colleague and friend, Ed Erhardt, who passed away from cancer. Initially, the goal was to raise money supporting the Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center, but has since grown to include fundraising for the Michael J. Fox Foundation to help find a cure for Parkinson’s disease. At our last event, we raised $200,000, and with your help our goal in 2019 is to meet or exceed this number.
The ball is rolling! The Big Ed Bowl is well on its way to reaching our fundraising goal. With the support of our sponsors and ticket sales, we’ve raised $128,000. Help us reach our goal, become a sponsor or purchase your tickets today!

Why we do it
Cancer has affected our friends, colleagues and families. According to the National Cancer Institute, approximately 38.4% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes. Your donation supports the research to help finding a cure.
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. There is no known cure for Parkinson's disease. But through your support of The Michael J. Fox Foundation, you can help change this.
