Brian Managan

Thank you for visiting my New England Parkinson's Ride fundraising page. I am one of the thousands of people around the globe who are turning their passions into action and joining the fight toward a cure for Parkinson's disease.

More than six million people worldwide live with Parkinson's today and it has become the second most common neurological disorder. This year alone, approximately 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed in the United States. There is no known cure.

Together we can change that.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF) is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today.

Team Fox is the grassroots community fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation, raising funds and awareness by working with people in the community to create their own fundraising events.

On September 10th, I will be riding with the New England Parkinson's Ride, the largest Team Fox single-day fundraising event in the world. The Ride has raised over $8.5 million since inception and has a goal to raise an additional $2 million in 2022. With your help we will reach that goal.

And here's the best part, when you give through my fundraising page, 100 percent of your donation will go straight to MJFF's research efforts to speed a cure for Parkinson's disease and improve the lives of those living with PD today.

Why am I doing this? What's my connection?

Long story short ... I have REM Behavior Disorder (RBD) which is widely understood to be a prodromal symptom of Parkinson's Disease (PD). I've been evaluated, and to date, I show no motor symptoms of PD, and a recent DaTscan showed no loss of dopamine ... a good sign, so far. I very likely will NOT develop PD, but friends have ... So here I am!

Thank you for being part of this amazing team effort!

With Gratitude - Brian
