Welcome to Jim Kaufmann's Personal Page

Jim Kaufmann

This year I am proud to play a part in the fight against Parkinson’s disease. As a Team Fox member, I will challenge myself with half marathons, 2 half Ironman triathlons and then my 9th Marine Corps Marathon. Taking on the challenge of this fundraising endeavor is both exciting and inspiring. I am making a commitment to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s disease (PD) because my dad has been diagnosed with this disease. Dad has always been there for me. He taught me how to rise to a challenge and to follow through with commitments. He taught me how to plan for and how to conquer challenges. I am dedicating my efforts to The Michael J. Fox Foundation because I believe that I am helping to ultimately shorten the road to a cure.

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.

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.


Best - Jim
