I was diagnosed with Parkinson's just about 3 years ago. One of the things I have learned about Parkinson't is that it is very important to remain physically active. Last year and earlier this year I participated in a bike ride that raises funds for Parkinson's research. This fall, I am participating in the Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) Fox Trot 5K Run/Walk for Parkinson's Research in Boston, MA. I will be joined by my husband Lou, and long time friends who live in Lexington, MA. Our team's goal is to raise $2500.

I am one of the more than 6 million people worldwide who 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.

Thank you for your support! - Joan
PS, please feel free to pass this on to any of your friends or family that might be interested in making a donation.
