Troll Walk (in support of my Mother, Rosalind Troll Cain)

Welcome to My Page

Kelly Marvain
Hello, my name is Kelly Marvain, and I have joined this team to help raise awareness and funds for the research of Parkinson's Disease. My mother, Rosalind (Lynne), was a vibrant artist until this disease struck. Mom lost her art, but not her innate kindness; she is loved by many. 

My goal for this exercise challenge is to log 150+ dedicated walking miles beginning October 11 (Mom's birthday) running through November 10. I would love help in reaching my fundraising goal of $2500.00. I will post weekly updates both here and on Facebook to show my progress.

I chose the Michael J. Fox Foundation to pursue this goal because of their incredible efforts to eradicate Parkinson's; over $1 BILLION dollars have been raised and donated to the research of PD to date!  I joined the team "Exercise to Defeat Parkinson's", based in Lititz, PA.; 100% of all donations made to this team and fundraiser will be used to fund Parkinson's Research. This team has raised over $180,000 since 2014!

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 consideration,
Best - Kelly
