Your EFFORTS Are Making A Difference

Mark Gherty

Since the creation of the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson Research 18 years ago, in excess of $800 million has been raised. The fruits of the funded research are now being harvested, with the FDA "de-risking" medications that specifically aid PD patients, as noted in a January 23, 2019 Bloomberg article.

I am again a member of the team, Ski for Parkinson's 2019, with Bill Brown and fellow team members. 100 percent of all funds raised go to research. I will be skiing my 36th Pre-Birkie, 27km, on February 9th and the Kortelopet, on February 22nd. The Kortelopet is the 28km race held the day before the American Birkebeiner.

Please accept my thanks, for your consideration, contributions, well wishes and prayers. As you may recall, I ski for my sister Barb and in the memory of my late brother Larry. I will keep you all in my thoughts, as I crown the top of the Birkie Bridge and head down Main St., Hayward, on to the finish.

Thank you!
Best wishes - Mark
