PNC Triangle Club and Goodmon Field

Dinner & Drinks - Batting Practice - Family Fun


Ryan's diagnosis in 2016 at the age of 38 felt like a strike-out, but he is continuing to turn it into a home run! This October we all have a RARE opportunity to hit Batting Practice for PD @ the Durham Bulls Athletic Park! Have dreams of playing like a big leaguer? Want to support someone you love with Parkinson's disease? Looking for a fun family party at an exclusive (and iconic!) location?

There are THREE ways to participate:

(1) FUNDRAISE -- To join our team and earn a spot in the batter's box, or at least earn admission to the party for you and your family, click on Join Our Team to get started. On your desktop, look 👉🏼 for the orange "Join Our Team" button. On your mobile device, keep scrolling👇🏼 to find the orange "Join Our Team" button. For "Team Member/Batter" qualification details, look 👆🏼or visit our BP for PD facebook page here:

(2) BUY TICKETS -- If batting practice isn't your thing, you can still join the party in the PNC Triangle Club, overlooking the stadium, with a catered dinner, beer from Bull Durham Beer Company, family games, and a silent auction of fun items. To buy individual, non-fundraiser "Party Tickets" visit:

(3) DONATE -- Can't attend the party but still want to support a worthy cause? Donate here on our official "BP for PD" team page or donate to one of our hopeful batters listed below!

An important tenet to managing PD symptoms is exercise - Ryan and others with the disease need to move it or lose it! Baseball has been a huge source of Ryan's well-being since his diagnosis, and as a life-long baseball player, coach, and fan, we are blessed with an opportunity to take Goodmon Field at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park on October 10th for batting practice. This is a RARE opportunity to "hit bull - win steak" or "hit grass - win salad!"

Dig out your cleats and put on your fundraising hat, or grab your friends and family and meet us at the ballpark! We can't wait to see you on October 10th to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation!!

- Ryan, Gretchen, Hudson, Nora, and friends 🦊🧡🐂
