Thank you for visiting my page!

As I write this I have just learned that the Tour de Fox, the Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) Tour de Fox Cycling Series for Parkinson's Research is going virtual. That means-instead of one event-the Pacific Northwest Ride in Port Coquitlam-there will be dozens of smaller groups of riders and supporters putting in the kilometers all over the continent and around the world.

I didn't know what to expect when I plunked down my entry fee at the end of February, but I knew I wanted to be part of it. This will be my 4th effort hiking and riding for the Fox Foundation, and though I have some worries about my sometimes surprising disabilities, I am committed to the cause. I am going to the end of the line, and I hope it's the finish line !

As I get down to work to plan my ride (likely August 15, I am scoping out a nice rolling 40 km route in beautiful country near my home in North Saanich on Vancouver Island) and roll up my sleeves to raise some pledges, I want to assure you that I am serious about my effort, and will do my very best to represent the hopes and wishes of people with Parkinson's and their supporters in raising the funds that will provide for better care for people suffering from this disease and one day soon, I am certain, a cure !

An estimated six million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) — a chronic neurodegenerative disorder. As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of PD research, MJFF is working to change this. I'm working to help them.

Your gift will make a real difference: 100 percent of Tour de Fox Pacific Northwest ride proceeds will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s high-impact research programs.

Please help me move a cure for Parkinson's disease forward by making a donation today.

Thank you for your support, and stay tuned here or by e-mail for developments in this year's Tour de Fox.

With your help, a cure is virtually here !

Len
