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 Team Fox, you can help change this.


About Jim's Jog for Parkinson's Research

Jim's Jog is a 5K Run/Walk benefitting Team Fox and the Michael J. Fox Foundation. It was founded in memory of James J. "Jim" Fielding, Jr., a beloved friend, father of 9, grandfather of 16, and great-grandfather of 1. Jim was an Air Force veteran who served in WWII, an avid tennis-player, and a dog lover. He suffered with Parkinson's disease for over a decade of his life; however, he refused to be defined solely by his symptoms, continuing to do the things he loved in the capacity available to him. On April 1st, 2014, Jim passed away at the age of 92 due to complications of Parkinson's disease. He lived a long and fruitful life filled with happiness, love, and fun, and was an inspiration to all who met him. In his death, the urgent need for a cure for this debilitating disease was made even clearer to his loving family. Jim's Jog was created by his grandchildren to honor him and create a lasting legacy, as well as to help the millions of people worldwide who are forced to live with Parkinson's disease every day. The event will take place on September 9th, 2017, beginning at 9 am, at Spruce Run Recreation Area, 68 Van Syckels Road, Clinton, NJ 08809. Jim's Jog is open to participants of all ages - bring the family and come walk, run, and have fun! Plenty of prizes will be offered; make sure you take advantage of this amazing opportunity to contribute to charity and have a great time while doing so. If you would like to register for Jim's Jog, please visit our website at jimsjog.com to learn how. If you cannot join us on race day but would still like to support our efforts, please feel free to make a donation from this page.


About Team Fox

Team Fox is The Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) grassroots community fundraising program. It is made up of thousands of people worldwide who raise funds and awareness for Parkinson's disease research. All funds raised through Team Fox go directly to MJFF to further its mission to accelerate the delivery of life-changing treatments, and ultimately a cure, to people with Parkinson's disease.

Thanks to the generous support of an anonymous donor, 100% of Team Fox proceeds go directly to research efforts to help speed a cure for Parkinson's.


We are extremely grateful for the support of friends and family as we organize this worthwhile event in support of Team Fox, and hope to see many familiar faces on September 9th. With your help, we can find a cure.

Best,
The Fielding Family and the Jim's Jog Team
