Welcome to Chip's Griddlers
In honor of former Sanford Head of School Chip MacKelcan, Chip's Griddlers are back in action for this year's Pancakes for Parkinson's event. Prior to his death, Chip (seen here with Michael J. Fox at last year's event) was actively involved with the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. We hope that all members of the Sanford and greater community will join us in the Sports Center on campus to enjoy all-you-can-eat pancakes for $10 per person. If you cannot attend but would like to make a contribution as a tribute to Chip, please donate by clicking the link to the right.
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 $297 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, 2012, 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!
