Last year, my mom was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. My grandfather also lived with it for many years until he passed away in 1999. Surprisingly, even though it has been nearly 20 years since my granddad's passing, not much has changed in the treatment of Parkinson's. There is no known cure.

I will be training over the next 3.5 months to run the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2019 with Team Fox & New Balance in honor of my mom and her fight against this disease. Please join me!

ABOUT PARKINSON'S DISEASE & TEAM FOX
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.

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.

Please help drive towards a cure for Parkinson’s. When you give today, 100 percent of Team Fox proceeds go straight to MJFF research programs.
