Welcome to the 1st Annual Parkinson's Smoke Out Event Page

A very dear friend of mine is living with Parkinson's Disease. We are as close as brothers, growing up together since 11 years old.

At 35 you can imagine how this changes your life. He has a wife, daughter and son to take care of and he was working hard for the EVSC, doing just that when diagnosed. Now forced to stay at home and battle this horrific disease he is raising awareness about PD through his Facebook page. I decided to raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation by doing what I do best, making BBQ!

I have gathered some great Pit Masters to cook and sell BBQ to raise money for Parkinson's Research. This is a Sanctioned KCBS BBQ Competition, Blues Concert and Beer Garden along with a silent auction. Please come support us and the foundation. This event is taking place at Casino Aztar in Evansville, Indiana.

Five million people worldwide are living with Parkinsons Disease(PD) ? 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 PD. But through your support of Team Fox, you can help change this.

Team Fox is The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) a grassroots community fundraising program. Its members include thousands of people worldwide who generate funds and awareness for PD 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 PD.

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 $313 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 (www.foxtrialfinder.org). Whether you have PD or not, you can play a critical role in moving research forward - create your profile now!

Your timing to step up for Team Fox could not be better. Be a part of the answer and help us speed a cure for Parkinsons today!
