Toshiye was a mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt beloved by everyone. She was a dancer, a singer, and enjoyed reading and doing crossword puzzles in her spare time. Not to mention, she made a killer chicken fried steak.
She was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2013, and this team for her. Her granddaughter, Claire, decided she would run (she hates running) in her honor. The goal is to raise money for Parkinson's and challenging herself - something that she knows Toshi would've liked and would have cheered her on. Grandma just has the best seat in the house now.
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.
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.
