Team KICKING PARKINSON'S BOOTAY!

Kicking Parkinson's Bootay!

We are a group of friends who are running to raise money for Parkinson's disease research. Our team captain, Allan Cole, was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in the fall of 2016, at the age of 48. Other team members live with Parkinson's disease as well; or they have family members touched by it.

We will run the Austin Marathon on February 17, 2019. So far, we have raised over $20,000 and hope to raise more before the race.

More than 10 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease — a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder that affects one's ability to move. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone.

There is no known cure for Parkinson’s, but many experts say we are close to significant breakthroughs. These include better treatments and even stopping disease progression. You can help us get even closer with your support of Team Fox.

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.

We have joined 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.

Thank you for helping so many of us by joining in the work to cure Parkinson's.

Together, we will find a cure.
