#bobbystrong | Running for a Reason

Tyler Griffin

Running 26.2 miles is tough but there is a tried and true way to getting it done. You prepare, you follow the course, and you run your race.

One of the people that will be cheering me on that day is my Uncle Bobby. He inspires me. You see, my Uncle Bob is being challenged too, but by something without a charted course and no finish line in sight.

My Uncle, along with five million people worldwide, is living with Parkinson’s disease — a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone.

I'm running the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 16, 2018 to help raise money and awareness so that, together, we can out fox Parkinson's disease.

There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. But through your support of Team Fox, the grassroots community fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF), you can help change this. 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 to drive Team Fox fundraising efforts to help them speed up the development of a cure for Parkinson’s. When you give today, 100 percent of Team Fox proceeds go straight to MJFF research programs.

Boston Strong was a rallying cry for a city that refused to be intimidated by terror. This year, I hope you'll join me and my family in our efforts to support Team Fox in making strides against Parkinson's disease.

We were inspired to come up with our own rallying cry. Here's to being #bobbystrong.
