Welcome to My Page

Peter Marconi

On April 10 of this year, it was 7 years since I heard Dr. Daniel Tarcy say, “I’m pretty sure you have early-onset Parkinson’s”.

Those few words change the entire trajectory of my life. I quickly became aware of what was important in life and what was simply noise. True friends came out of the woodwork to support me. My wife Cheryl was and still is a rock that never waivers. In fact, she now has 35+ Fighters in her Rock Steady classes held in Dover MA!

My friends at Charles River CrossFit support and encourage me every day not to mention, they hold an annual “Pulling for Pete” fundraiser to feed into the NEPR fundraising.

I am very fortunate as I have a strong support system and have progressed slowly compared to many. This could be my commitment to daily exercise, the supplement regimen I have developed with my naturopath or just plain luck. Nonetheless, the disease is progressing as they predicted and as it does for every other person with Parkinson’s. Tremendous progress has been made due largely to the funding provided by the Michael J Fox foundation but a cure is not yet in sight. In fact, we still don’t have a way of stopping the progression.

On September 7, 2019 team CRCF Strong will once again jump on their bikes and ride 50 miles (a few brave souls will ride 100 miles) to raise awareness and funds to support the necessary research and trials to develop a cure.

Last year, this amazing team of 43 individuals raised nearly $125,000 and was the largest team, both in size and in fundraising, to participate in the NEPR, the largest single-day fundraising event for the Fox foundation! My personal fundraising goal is $30,000. The goal of the event is $1+ million.

Thank you for your support and generosity and please pass this on to anyone else that might be interested in helping.
