I am participating in the Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) Tour de Fox Cycling Series for Parkinson's Research and fundraising because we still need to find therapies and possibly a cure for Parkinson’s. 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. All of us know someone impacted by this disease. While I myself do not have the disease, my family and I are affected by and experience the challenges of Parkinson’s everyday. I am hopeful, saddened, worried and inspired by my husband, Allan’s journey with this tough disease. I am constantly reminded that every bit of research is needed to find new pathways to medicines that work and ensure a better quality of life. I am determined to do everything in my power to help stop disease progression and discover more options for those living with Parkinson's Disease. I will definitely miss riding up in the wine country for the Tour de Fox this year, but Allan and I will ride with Team Denali to raise money for the Michael J Fox Foundation. 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. I hope you will consider making a contribution to this meaningful cause. Hugs of gratitude, Kate
