As most of you know, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in January 2020. Since that time, the word that God has given me is "flourish." This word is a reminder for me that despite my diagnosis, He still has a plan and purpose for my life.
This upcoming Saturday, my family is participating in RaceTrac's Run for Research 5K/1K to benefit The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. If you would like to join us on the walk/run, you can register at 2021 Run for Research 5K (runsignup.com). Make sure you join Team Flourish.
If you are unable to join us for the Run for Research, please consider a donation to this foundation.
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. When you give today, 100 percent of Team Fox proceeds go straight to MJFF research programs.
