Shaken Not Stirred

Kate Harmon

We've set some lofty goals for this year. As a family, 2019 is the 10th year we've been raising funds for The Michael J. Fox Foundation to the tune of over $400,000. For Matthew and I, it's our third year hosting Shaken Not Stirred in York, and our goal is to raise $10,000 during our April 28th event.

2019 marks another milestone for our family. It's Dad's 70th birthday. It was 2006 when he told us the news that he had Parkinson's Disease. Thirteen years since our lives changed ... and honestly, we'd all probably say for the better.

In this journey, we've met some of the most amazing people. We've contributed money directly to research. We've been in trials, including one that's coming out on the market soon to handle off-times in patients. We've tried to comfort others. We've taken phone calls from those who just received their diagnosis or are struggling. We've embraced our friends as they've lost their fathers, their mothers, their friends. We've lost some of our own.

But mostly, in doing this, we're telling and showing them that they're not alone. Our Dad may be the person with PD, but he's not alone in this. Join us on April 28th to help us do just that.

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.
