My dad has Parkinson's disease. It seems like I've been saying he's had a really tough year every year...but this year was different. New mediations and balancing old ones has helped. This past year has been his best yet. Unfortunately this isn't true for everyone.

Approximately five million people worldwide live with Parkinson's. 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.

My dad has sacrificed for me and been my hero forever. The least I can do is ride my bike and raise money to cure Parkinson’s disease in his honor. That's why I've registered for the 11th annual New England Parkinson's Ride on Saturday, September 7, 2019. Over 1,000 cyclists will gather to help pedal closer to a cure.

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 supporting my dad, the New England Parkinson's Ride and the mission of The Michael J. Fox Foundation to help speed a cure for Parkinson's!

Much love,
