It has always been a dream of mine to run the Boston Marathon!

While I have taken pilot lessons, jumped off the highest bungee platform in the world, climbed mountains, run with the Bulls, completed a full Iron Man and run countless marathons, I have never run Boston. You see, I have Early onset Parkinson’s disease and can’t really run anymore.

But......I can walk pretty well when I put my mind to it and was able to walk across America, finishing this January, in 67 days, averaging 40 miles each day.

More shocking, my father was also diagnosed with Parkinson's 3 years after I was....

The Boston Marathon is the classic American race and the oldest annual marathon in the world. I am training harder for this race than I have for anything else and will be doing everything I possibly can, to try and run the whole thing.

Your support means so much to me and my father, please consider a donation, or just send me a note of encouragement (Or Both).

Thanks much, please look for updates on social media:

An estimated five million people worldwide live with Parkinson's today. It is the second most common neurological disorder. In the United States, approximately 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure.

Together, we can change this.

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.
Thank you for being part of this team!
