Thank you for visiting our team’s page! Once again this year,, we are taking part in the Boston Fox Trot 5K Run/Walk for Parkinson's Research to support the work of The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF).
On September 6, 2019, our family lost our brightest light. For those of you who knew my dad Charlie, you know that he was one of the kindest men you’ve ever met. Charlie’s was a very giving person and helped many people during his life . His love for his wife, Pat of 61 years and for his children and grandchildren was immeasurable. Several years ago, a Parkinson’s Disease diagnosis began to steal the man we all knew and loved. Parkinson’s is a neurological disease which causes tremors, muscular degeneration, speaking difficulties, balance issues, dementia, and so much more. Watching this once strong man’s body and mind slowly deteriorate was extremely painful, not only for our family but also for him. Currently, there are limited treatments and no cure for this monstrous disease and each year 60,000 people receive a diagnosis. The Michael J. Fox Foundation works tirelessly everyday to ensure that we will beat Parkinson’s .
On October 3, our family will once again be participating in the Boston Fox Trot 5k for Parkinson’s. due to the current circumstances this will be a virtual event, however we will still be walking. We are asking for your help to overcome Parkinson’s and make sure that in the future, nobody will ever have to suffer from this disease again. If you have the means, we would greatly appreciate your donation towards this cause in honor of Charlie, and if not we ask that you share our fundraising links with your friends and family. No donation is too small. We have faith that that together, we can cure this disease. Please see the link below to our team fundraising page.
Thank you for your continued support and generosity.
