6th Annual Kobers for the Cure Golf Outing

Tom Kober

Dear Friends and Family,

It was over 13 years ago that I first felt the tremor that ultimately led to a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Yet, I don’t ask that you join our cause on my behalf.

I am writing, primarily, to thank you once again for your response to our annual fundraiser. You have proven to be nothing short of spectacular. Your answer to our call for assistance has gone and will continue to go a long way towards attaining our targeted objective of eliminating PD, not only in our lifetime – but soon. I am not exaggerating the extent to which you have helped make each of our previous events so successful. We collectively raised more money in our fifth tournament than we did in our first and the aggregate proceeds from last years’ event alone exceeded $100,000 !!!

As Team Fox members, I, my wife Elaine, and a tirelessly energetic contingent of family and friends will be hosting our 6th consecutive spring time golf tournament, cocktail reception and dinner with all proceeds being funneled directly to the Michael J. Fox Foundation For Parkinson’s Research (MJFF) to help shorten the road to a cure for PD.

Over five million people worldwide are living with PD – a chronic degenerative neurological disorder whose symptoms typically progress from mild tremors to complete physical incapacitation. In the United States, 60,000 new cases of PD will be diagnosed this year with an average onset age of 60. As many as ten percent of those afflicted with PD experience its initial onset at age 40 or younger.

There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. Currently available treatments temporarily mask symptoms while the disease continues to progress. The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today.

I will disseminate more information in the coming weeks, but I am hoping that you will make a special note on your calendars for Friday, May 10, 2019 and plan to join with me and Team Fox that day as we “Tee off ‘Fore’ Parkinson’s” at the Royce Brook Golf Club in Hillsborough, New Jersey.

I have been truly blessed with supportive family and friends while receiving superior medical treatment and I invite you to join me in making a difference in the lives of the many others living with all stages of PD. Together, I have no doubt that we can shorten the road to a cure – not just eventually, but soon!

Thank you and best wishes to all of you for a happy and healthy new year when we can and we do make a difference.
