I will be running a half marathon (13.1miles) every day for 9 days from July31st to August 8th and also competing in the Tunnel Marathon on September 12th. You're probably wondering WHY would anybody do that? The reason is simple for me but no so simple for many! 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. Personally I know three close people with this ruthless degenerative disease and one is in our family. Uncle Dave was recently diagnosed and at times he really struggles. One of my running friends Joe who also has Parkinson's keeps his symptoms somewhat suppressed by staying very active with running. This will be eventually be a destructive disease for almost all diagnosed, it's only a matter of time. So i'm partnering with my friend Joe and many others with Team FOX in the fight for more research for this ravishing disease and hopefully bring in some much needed money.
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.
If you can I am asking for a donation of $13.1 or more if you're able. One mile at a time we will get there!
