Thanks for taking the time to visit my page! In short, I am running the 2013 NYC Marathon in honor of my incredible mother. Mama Magoon fights hard every single day, and this marathon is my small tribute to all she does. Team Fox does tremendous work and I am grateful to have gotten more involved. This past year, in addition to running for Team Fox, I also participated in clinical research (you can too!: https://foxtrialfinder.michaeljfox.org/).
Throughout this past year I met countless people affected by Parkinson's who shared inspiring stories that made me hopeful for a future without Parkinson's Disease. I also met Parkinson's patients who shared their truly amazing stories with me. One Parkinon's patient enrolled in a genetics clinical trial and went from using a cane to successfully running marathons and triathalons- he and his wife were absolutely incredible! I have been awestruck at the courage, love, and support that people muster in the face of this disease.

Five million people worldwide (including my mother) are living with Parkinsons 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 Parkinsons disease. But through your support of Team Fox, you can help change this.
Team Fox is The Michael J. Fox Foundations (MJFF) grassroots community fundraising program. Its members include thousands of people worldwide who generate funds and awareness for Parkinsons disease research. All funds raised through Team Fox go directly to MJFF to advance its mission to accelerate the delivery of life-changing treatments, and ultimately a cure, to people with Parkinsons disease.
