Thank you for visiting my Tour de Fox page! This year, I am actively participating in the Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) Tour de Fox Cycling Series for Parkinson's Research in support of my friend, Dave Keller. An estimated six million people worldwide 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. Many of those six million people may not be known by us personally, but some are our own family members and friends, like Dave. For these folks, PD is a very real part of their lives each and every day. In Dave's own words, "PD is complex and affects people in a variety of ways--in my case, I tremor on my left side sometimes, my throat feels constricted, affecting speech and swallowing, and at times, I feel at a loss for words, which is awkward for a guy who majored in Rhetoric and spent his career in sales and sales management! Other signs are fatigue, stiffness and slowness of movement. For me, none of these symptoms is constant, but they are present enough to be a daily reminder that PD will be an ongoing challenge for me." One thing Dave decided he could do a few years ago is to support the work to find a cure for this affliction, which he has been doing with gusto. 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 Tour de Fox virtual ride proceeds will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s high-impact research programs. Please help us move a cure for Parkinson's disease forward by making a donation today. I'm prepared to work for your support - we'll be doing a 72 mile ride around Lake Tahoe with Dave. Hopefully, every mile we put behind us will bring us closer to a cure. Thank you for your support! All the best, Carl
