Since I already crossed running the marathon off my bucket list (3 years in a row) I figured I would do something more challenging this year. So I have decided to (attempt) to do the Dopey Challenge. It is a 5K, 10K, half marathon and full marathon 4 days in a row. Not completely convinced I’ll be able to finish but I’m going to give it my best shot!! I’m doing this to raise money for Parkinson’s research to find a cure! They’ve been making incredible advances over the past several years and this is a cause that is very near and dear to me as I’m running in support of my Godmother, Gail Nanof! Please consider donating, every dollar counts :)
Everyone can help end Parkinson’s disease.
An estimated five 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.
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’s programmatic efforts.
Thank you for being part of this team!
