Welcome to My MJFF Fundraising Page

This year, I am participating in The Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) Virtual 10K in honor of my dad, Don Bateman. My dad was a hardcore marathoner before it was cool to be one. He completed over 50 marathons from his early 50s to his mid 60s. The last race he completed was a Mercer Island Rotary 10k that he and I ran together when he was 70 years old. Running was a big part of his life, so this fundraiser is fitting in many ways as he is currently living with late stage Parkinson's disease (PD). Parkinson's been a hard road for my dad and our family.

More than 6 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. Through my dad's journey, we've learned much about Parkinson's, most of which is sad and frustrating, but one of the most hopeful things we've learned about on this journey is the Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF). As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of PD research, MJFF is working tirelessly to find a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensure the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today.

Your gift will make a real difference: 100 percent of Virtual 5K/10K 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! - Katherine
