Did you know that 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.
We are doing our part by working with Team Fox, which is the grassroots community fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF). They are 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.
Last year in looking for ways we could help, especially during the pandemic, we turned to one of our passions - live music. We put on "Music For A Cure: A Front Porch Benefit Show For Parkinson's" and it was a great success. We had the wonderfully talented Neil Buettner come out and put on a show in our driveway and we livestreamed it so anyone could watch along with us and donate. We are proud to say our friends and family managed to raise over $4,500 for Team Fox!
Like the saying goes... if it aint broke, don't fix it.
On May 8, 2021 at 1 PM (Pacific Standard Time) we will be livestreaming an event called "Music For A Cure: Parkinstock". Much like last year, you can help donate to this much needed cause all while enjoying what brings us together... MUSIC! In addition to having Neil return to play, we have added the musical prowess of another local musician, Jamie Byous. Thanks for partnering with us Jamie! We can't wait to hang out and jam to their music and make new relationships for a great cause.
