I'm dusting off my running shoes and participating in the Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) Fox Trot 5K Run/Walk for Parkinson's Research.
More than 6 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) — a chronic neurodegenerative disorder and my dad, Joe, is one of them. He has bravely faced this disease for the last decade with a smile on his face and, if you were at my wedding, some fierce dance moves.
There is currently no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of PD research, MJFF is working to change this.
MJFF is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today.
Your gift will make a real difference: 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 bust a move and make this "the one where we get a step closer" to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease by making a donation and/or running-walking with me today.
Thank you for your support! - Christina
