Exercise is one of the best actions people living with Parkinson's disease can do to help manage their symptoms. Rowing is an excellent way to work most major muscle groups while experiencing a cardio benefit.
The Row to Slow Parkinson's was created in 2020 to help raise awareness of the importance of exercise for those living with Parkinson's. Additionally, we hope to raise $25,000 for Parkinson's research through Team Fox. Members can establish an annual goal and generate pledges, or we will have a rowing day event in 2021 where we will try to cumulatively row 1 million meters in gyms or homes across the world!
The 2021 Million Meter Row-A-Thon will take place on Saturday, October 23

Everyone can help end Parkinson’s disease. More than six million people worldwide live with Parkinson's today. It is the second most common neurological disorder. In the United States, approximately 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure.
Together, we can change this. Team Fox is the grassroots community fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF). MJFF is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today.
I’m one of the 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’s programmatic efforts. Thank you for being part of this team!- Row to Slow Parkinson's
