Five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease — a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. But through your support of Team Fox, you can help change this.
Everyone can help end Parkinson’s disease.
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 research programs.
My father, Bob Burkhardt, ignited in me my passion for cars and motorsports. We attended racing schools, car shows, and drove Route 66 together! Although Parkinson's has ended Bob's time on track, his spirit rides shotgun with me.
This year my co-driver, Ken Brinkman, and I are driving The Tire Rack One Lap of America. To honor Dad, we are raising money to help fund Parkinson's research. Although the event is too grueling for Dad to participate in, he'll be with us the entire 8 days and 3300 miles!
Thank you for giving to Parkinson's research and for following PajamaPants Racing on this fantastic adventure!
