Thank you for visiting my page! This year, I am participating in the Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) Fox Trot 5K Run/Walk for Parkinson's Research.

As some of you know, my father was diagnosed with PD in 1984 at age 44, seven years after his symptoms began at age 37. For the next 12 years he devoted every waking moment to learning more about Parkinson's and disseminating what he learned among some of the earliest listserv groups.

Over time, he would run support groups, publish a newsletter, participate in clinical trials, and aggressively advocate for others diagnosed with this chronic neurodegenerative disorder. Today there is an award named after him at the PD Unity Walk in New York City. You can read about that at https://www.unitywalk.org/bonander.php.

Today, more than 6 million people worldwide are living with PD and a cure has remained elusive. MJFF is the world’s largest nonprofit funder of PD research and they are working to change this.

A full 100 percent of Fox Trot for Parkinson's Research proceeds will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s high-impact research programs.

Help me move a cure for Parkinson's disease over the finish line by making a donation today.

Thank you for your support! - Ross
