I have sent you this because, as most of you already know, I am one of the five million people worldwide that are living with Parkinson's disease...a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder. I was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson's Disease in November of 2012 at age 46. It can happen to anybody - it happened to me. I am choosing to persevere and do my best in an Ironman 70.3 competition on October 27, 2013 in Miami, Florida. Here is the link: http://ironmanmiami.com/. I have been raising funds since January and I am training hard for the event that I have dreamed about completing for so long. I will do everything I can to raise funds for Team Fox and train my butt off to held find a cure.
Please read on...
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 $304 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!
Now through December 31, 2013, all Team Fox members new to the program or those who raised more than last year will have their funds matched dollar-for-dollar, thanks to the $50-million Brin Wojcicki Challenge.
Your timing to step up for Team Fox couldn't be better. Be a part of the answer and help us speed a cure for Parkinson's today!
