Everyone can help end Parkinson’s disease.
I am running with my husband, Bill O'Donnell and my colleague and mentor Donald Miller, M.D.. Donald was my preceptor when I was a first year med student, gave me great advice when I was establishing my practice and continues to teach me how to live life to the fullest despite adversity. Donald is one of a handful of runners with Parkinson's who has completed the New York Marathon. Incredible!

An estimated five million people worldwide live with Parkinson's today. 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.

Together, we can change this.

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 being part of our team! We will make a difference!
