Poppie’s Foxes

Poppie’s Foxes

On October 13th we are lacing up our sneakers for the Bay Area Fox Trot 5K Run/Walk for Parkinson's Research, benefitting The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF). We're trotting in support of my Dad (the kids' Poppie), who after being diagnosed with Parkinson's 2 years ago, chose to 'lace up his sneakers' by participating in a clinical trial, engage in the MJFF/Parkinson's community, and continue his active lifestyle. We're so proud of his efforts and grateful to MJFF for all of the support!

In addition to rigorous a training regimen to get all 5 of us in shape for the Trot, we will be holding a few market stands around town selling goodies from our garden and kitchen in hopes of reaching our fundraising goal of $1,500. We hope you'll consider stopping by if you're in the area or making a donation on our team page.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation has been a tremendous resource for our family. Not only is MJFF steering research and funding clinical trials, but it has also made available a trove of PD related information and research through its website and podcast series. It has formed a tight community of families all living with PD and enabled us to look for answers together. The Wilson Family is extremely grateful for what the Michael J. Fox Foundation has done for us and so many others. We are proud to support it at this year’s Bay Area Fox Trot.

Your gift, of any amount, 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.Your gift is tax deductible and will be maximized for the greatest benefit for patients and families: Fox Trot proceeds go directly to the Foundation’s pursuit of a cure.

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. 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.

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

Thank you for your support! - Poppie’s Foxes
