Medchart Trail Blazers


Welcome to My Page

Medchart Trail Blazers
Medchart and friends are running and hiking the entire Bruce Trail to fundraise for Parkinson’s Disease. There will be two groups: the running group and the hiking group. Each group will complete the approx. 900km trek from Niagara Falls to Tobermory.  Check back here for updates as we cross Ontario over the next 6 to 12 months to complete the full Bruce Trail!!! 

Members of the team have family and friends who have been impacted by Parkinson's Disease and wish to inspire hope for a cure by raising money for research! 
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 North America, 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 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!
