This time it's for Parkinson's disease research!

Dear everyone,

Ricky Barrios here. Some of you may know me for my antics, and others may know my by reputation only. The important thing to know is that I'm at it again.

I've run them for personal reasons, and now it's time to run a marathon for something bigger.

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.

About Team Fox

Team Fox is The Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) grassroots community fundraising program.  It is made up of thousands of people worldwide who raise funds and awareness for Parkinson's disease research.  All funds raised through Team Fox go directly to MJFF to further its mission to accelerate the delivery of life-changing treatments, and ultimately a cure, to people with Parkinson's disease.

Help us speed a cure for Parkinson's!

And help me cement my hard earned title of the fastest kid you know.

There will be happy hours, there will be trivia, there will be prizes, and there will be surprises.

Come out all summer as I raise the most money for my fastest race yet.

Stay tuned for event details.


Thank you
