Fox Trot for Parkinson's Research

 The Fox Trot for Parkinson's Research

Thank you for your interest in the 2013 Fox Trot for Parkinson's Research. The walk was held in March and raised close to $21,000 for the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Thank you to everyone who participated and/or contributed. We will begin organizing next year's event soon. If you would like to participate on the organizational committee, please contact George Manahan at (304) 343-2800 or at Manahan@aol.com.

The Fox Trot is a 5k walk through downtown Charleston beginning and ending at Capitol Market. The Fox Trot name derives from the fact that all of the proceeds from the walk will be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation.

Parkinson's Disease and Team Fox

At least 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 Michael J. Fox Foundation?s (MJFF) grassroots community fundraising program. Its members include thousands of people worldwide who generate funds and awareness for Parkinson?s 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 Parkinson?s disease.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation is honored by your support. Since 2001, the Foundation has maintained an uncompromising pace ? strategically targeting our resources to achieve maximum impact on patients? lives, funding work on over 100 therapeutic targets to the tune of more than $325 million to date. MJFF also understands that patients are the key to a cure and is actively engaged with the PD community. To help connect patients and their loved ones with the clinical trials that urgently need their participation, the Foundation created a Web tool, Fox Trial Finder. Whether you have PD or not, you can play a critical role in moving research forward ? create your profile now!
