Welcome to My Page

Pat Simmons

Thanks for visiting my web page!

Most of you who know me, know that I love challenges!!! So when my friend Bill asked me to participate with him in 2 cross country ski races this year, one in Russia and one in Switzerland, of course I said yes!!

What you might not know is that my main reason, for saying yes was to support Bill who loves to ski, but also has Parkinson's.

Bill and I have been friends for over 25 years and he is truly an inspiration on and off the trail. 3 years ago Bill founded SkiforParkinson's and has raised over $200,000 during that time. Now is my chance and yours to join in this cause.

Last week Bill and I participated in the 50km Demino Ski Marathon in Rybinsk Russia. We are now in Switzerland and on Sunday will participate in the 42km Engadin Skimaraathon in St. Moritz.

Will you please join me in this effort by making a donation for every kilometer I ski? ($1/km is $42, etc.) I've made the first donation! This year 100% OF MONEY RAISED BY TEAM FOX GOES TO RESEARCH


A bit more about The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF):
SkiforParkinson's is part of The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research which is the leading funding organization for Parkinson's research in the world. 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.
