Team Splits and Giggles - Gwen + Ray Take on NYC Marathon

Gwen Schroeder

Gwen Schroeder

As many of you know, my father, Alan Schroeder, lived with Parkinson's disease for most of the last decade of his life. It was beyond hard to watch his struggle and decline. I was looking for a way to get involved and take action and found Team Fox. Little did I know then, running with this team changed the course of my life, my career and so much more! 

Over 10 years later, I'm still running to raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation. For a few years I also worked as the organization's first creative director. In that role I saw first hand how much your donations are helping to improve the lives of people with Parkinson's disease. From new therapies like inhaled levodopa which can impact a patient's ability to be "on" faster than every before, to their virtual educational event series like Parkinson's IQ + You, the organization is working hard every day to change the course of this disease. 

When you give today, 100 percent of Team Fox proceeds go straight to MJFF’s programmatic efforts.

Thank you so much for supporting my goal of raising $3,500 for the 2021 NYC Marathon. It's been harder than ever training with a 5 year old thru a pandemic, but I will carry on this fight until every single person that has or loves someone with Parkinson's is able to find this cure.
