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 - I AM ONE OF THEM!

There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. But through your support of Team Fox, you can help 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.

April is Parkinson's Awareness month - since my daughter Pamela created our team, Moving For A Cure, in 2010 we have raised over $100,000. We aim to keep growing that number in 2019.

We currently have several events on our calendar:
* * Saturday, March 16th - we assisted the Pleasantville Rotary Club at their event Hudson Valley Fermented at Pace University (Pleasantville, NY campus)
* * Saturday, April 13th - Shake It Off 5K
* * Sunday, April 28th - Adirondack 10K Fox Trot
* * Saturday, May 4th - Rock The Ridge in Minnewaska State Park, NY near Mohonk - we will run as part of a 4 person relay team - the 4 legs together will total 50 miles.
** Sunday, June 2nd - I and fellow Team Fox members will challenge ourselves to complete a Spartan Race at Richmond Hunting Club near Chicago
* * Saturday, June 22nd - Adirondack 15K Race to the Lake from Queensbury to Lake George

Join us for our next event - Cycle For A Cure on Oct, 12th at 12 noon at LifeTime Athletic Chappaqua - For details go to:
