Fighting Back Against Parkinson’s

Linda Sylva

Linda Sylva

Thank you for visiting my page! I was diagnosed in 2015 with Parkinson’s Disease at age 54. Exercise is an important part of battling Parkinson’s and I am in the Rock Steady Boxing program. This is a program with each exercise specifically designed to combat each Parkinson’s symptom. There are over 800 affiliates worldwide. This year, I am participating along with my fellow fighters along with our families and friends, 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. There is 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 move a cure for Parkinson's disease over the finish line by making a donation today.

Our motto at Rock Steady is - Keep Fighting!

Thank you for your support! - Linda
