Ride Across America

Greg Goodman

Hello,

My girlfriend Vida Stamey and I are in the early stages of a cross country bicycle ride. While it’s bound to be an exciting and fun trip, we hope that it can also be a vehicle for positive change in the fight against Parkinson’s disease.

We both have personal connections to people dealing with Parkinson’s. Family, friends, and even Vida’s father have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s. When we realized that we might be able to turn a fun adventure into a way to help raise money and awareness, it felt like a wonderful and unique opportunity to play a positive role in the search for 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. Team fox has created a great system for helping people like us contribute to their work. I’m excited to be 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.

We're excited for our ride, and hope its a fun way to spread the word about this opportunity for everyone to get involved in a great cause. We’ll be posting updates along the way, and hope to keep everyone excited about our trip, and the chance to help find a cure.


Warmest Regards,
Greg Goodman

A variety of locals keeping us company in our campsites

Glad to be back to the coast! ( cruising along the gulf for a few days)

We found a rather lovely escape from the heat wave passing through...

We got to bike through some pretty special forests

Pleasantly surprised to find we had loads of lovely bike paths during the first two days of riding!

Already finding some fabulous spots to camp! ( a walk through our first campsite heading west)

Some windy weather left us waiting to depart, but we are on our way!

We sorted out how to haul our stuff, and headed to the beach to kick off the ride!

I think we need a bigger bike...😂
