Virtual Challenge with the Choi Family
November 1st-30th, 2021
MOVEMBER4PD is a month-long virtual event founded by Jimmy and Cherryl Choi to mobilize everyone to MOVE and spread awareness on how movement helps those living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) during the month of November. This year, we invite everyone to a “mile a day” challenge for the month of November (aka MOVEmber) inspired by our son, Mason who runs/walks a mile a day to challenge himself. Participants are asked to move a mile every day by walking, running, biking, or any other creative activity they would like.
Jimmy Choi was diagnosed with young-onset Parkinson’s disease at the age of 27. After ignoring the disease for the first 8 years of his diagnosis, he discovered running and exercise helped him manage his symptoms greatly. He has channeled this passion to go on and achieve 105 half marathons, 16 full marathons, gran fondos, has stepped on the national stage to compete on American Ninja Warrior in the last 5 seasons, and during the pandemic broke 2 Guinness World Records for burpees and pushups. To learn more about Jimmy, visit the About Us page.
MOVEMBER4PD continues the awareness campaign virtually to educate and raise funds for Parkinson’s research. 100% of every dollar raised will be donated to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research. This virtual event brings together family and friends to enjoy a 1-mile run/walk/or any activity anywhere around the world and share their accomplishments online.
JOIN THE MOVEMENT! Sign up individually or form a team and invite your family and friends to join you to complete as many days as you can in the month of November. Post your achievements online every day on your Facebook page, Instagram, or TikTok and tag Jimmy @jcfoxninja each day with #MOVEMBER4PD. Let’s use social media for good all through November!
