Merrick and I are biking 1100 miles on the Quest to become McMenamin Tipster's. We are biking to bring awareness to Parkinson's Disease and supporting Merrick's father Marshall. We are biking in remembrance of my mother Joy.
We will begin our journey on September 6th for a 25 day-1100 mile bike journey that will take us from Mill Creek, WA to Roseburg, OR. We will pedal along the Oregon Coast and climb up to Bend and Government Camp before heading back down for our last few days in Portland.
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.
Thank you for your support!
Best - Because Some Can't--
Thank you for posting this fundraising opportunity. I am a Cosmic Tripster (3 times over) and a member of the McMenamin's Funn page. I have enjoyed watching your journey and am so impressed. What I love most is your motto of "because some can't". It makes me tear up each time I see it. Thanks for being such an inspiration!

Thank you for continuing to raise awareness about this debilitating disease that affects so many of our loved ones.
Firefighters have a passion for giving back to their communities event though it is a career we've chosen to support our families. The McGinnis family continually use their cycling skills, fitness and love of the community to help those who can't. Please do a little more and donate to this, a debilitating disease research foundation for Parkinson's. Go Team Fox and the McGinnis Family!!
Stay safe you two, thanks for all the good things you do.
