Thank you for visiting our team’s page! This year, we are taking part in the Los Angeles Fox Trot 5K Run/Walk for Parkinson's Research to support the work of The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF).

In 2005, our beloved Paul was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease at the age of 47. He is a father to two teenage children, a husband, an uncle, a son, a brother, a friend and so much more. Paul was a triathlete which culminated in the completion of a half Ironman in his forties. He loves skiing and the outdoors. This disease has taken away some of the things he loves and we have a hard time watching and accepting this. It's a terrible irony to watch a person who loves to be active and athletic be robbed of normal movement. Those of you who are dealing with Parkinson's know it's much more that a movement disorder. Paul has to deal with a lot of different symptoms but never complains. Most recently, Paul has had to stop working due to his Parkinson's disease. He worked for Boeing form more than 30 years. Now he keeps busy with projects around the house.

An estimated 5 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) — a chronic neurodegenerative disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. 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.

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

Thank you for your support! - Paul's Teamski
