I Run for Melissa

Pat Breslin

Yep, I’m running again!

As many of you know, my wife Melissa was diagnosed with young-onset Parkinson’s Disease a few years ago. She is fine and functioning well, but there is no known cure for Parkinson’s, even though it’s the second most common neurological disorder worldwide. Thanks to organizations like the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, though, a ton of money has been raised the past two decades, and some serious progress is being made, particularly in recent years.

I’m continuing to do what I can to help the cause, and in particular, I’m running in the NYC Half Marathon on March 17th (that’s right, on St. Patty’s Day). I’m running as a member of Team Fox, which is the grassroots community fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation. This will be my second half-marathon, and training’s been going well so far...although really, can any amount of training totally prepare you for running through Manhattan on St. Patty’s Day?

So here I go again, and I’m hoping you can support Melissa and I as I train for this. Seriously, whatever amount you can give is appreciated, and 100% of Team Fox proceeds go straight to the foundation’s efforts. We are truly grateful for your help, and with it I believe we will get closer to a cure.

Thanks so much,

Pat Breslin
