It has been more than nine years since I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. It's hard to believe my son was 10 years old at the time and now will soon be turning 20! There is not an hour in the day over those 9+ years when I am not reminded of this crazy, mystery disease that more than 6 million of us are inflicted with. The past 18 months have been challenging for all of us as our routines were interrupted by the pandemic. For me, that meant the daily ritual of going to CrossFit and bonding with my support team didn't happen and the consequences have been measurable. Progress in finding a cure for this disease has been slow but at least it moves forward thanks to the Michael J Fox foundation. We need to continue to search for answers through research and trials which is what 100% of your donation will be used for. If we can develop a vaccine for a pandemic in under a year, there must be a way in which to slop this disease! This is no longer a disease that primarily afflicts older people. Just the other day, I was speaking with somebody whose friend, 46 years old, was recently diagnosed with PD. 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 11th, 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 $7 million since its inception and has a goal to raise an additional $1.5 million in 2021. 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. Thank you for being part of this amazing team effort! With Gratitude - Peter

Hi I play tennis with Bill and are great friends with Bill and his wife. I heard great stories from them what a fighter you are. Maybe one day you would be willing to speak to my Women’s Basketball team at Emmanuel College as your story would be a great motivation for them. My cell is 617-877-8049. Andy Yosinoff
