Running for Research

Adam Shellenberger

Hi Everyone,
First off thank you for taking the time to visit this page, and for considering giving a donation; this charity means a great deal to me.

The fight against Parkinson's Disease is something that is incredibly important to me as my mother has lived with PD for a number of years. However, despite having Parkinson's my mother has been determined to remain very physically active. She last ran her 13th marathon in NYC two years ago and is still going out for runs to keep active. PD is a part of who she is but it doesn't define her an I am incredibly proud of her strength.

"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. They accelerate high-impact science with a commitment to urgency and efficiency. I’m one of thousands of people around the globe who are fundraising for Team Fox to help them speed a cure for Parkinson’s. When you give, 100% of Team Fox proceeds go straight to MJFF research programs."

On November 24th, 2019 I will be running the Philadelphia Marathon wearing a Team Fox Jersey to raise money and awareness of the fight to cure Parkinson's. Some of you may know I was planning on running the NYC marathon but that unfortunately did not work out. Hopefully I will also be able to run for Team Fox next year in NYC.

I'm asking you to donate anything you can, no matter how small, as every dollar goes toward research directly focused on making the biggest impact.

Yours truly,
Adam Shellenberger
