I first joined Team Fox in 2012, to run the NYC Half Marathon in honor of my Mom, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2010. With your help, I raised over $14,000! Later that year, I suffered a hip injury and had to undergo surgery. I did not committ to any big running events in 2013 but I did host an Alex and Ani fundraiser for Team Fox which raised almost $500!

Now here we are in 2014! I am back to running and have set some pretty big goals for this year! I hope that you will help me reach them! 

  • Host my own 5K! The Fox Trot 5K - April 5, 2014, South Glens Falls, NY - Complete! Our event raised $10,000!
  • Run the Plattsburgh Half Marathon for Team Fox - April 27, 2014, Plattsburgh, NY - Finished! Great run through the City of Plattsburgh for Team Fox!
  • Run the NYC Marathon with Team Fox - November 2, 2014
  • Raise $20,000 for Team Fox!

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.
