As many may know, there is no cure for Parkinson's Disease. The gold standard medication (Levidopa) was developed over 65 years ago. And while research is helping to provide some new innovative medications. We still need better diagnostics and a cure.

In October 2012 I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. Since being diagnosed I have met people with Parkinson's, their families, their friends, the people who help provide support...and it has touched me and surprised me the strength of their fight. But they shouldn't have to fight. We need a cure, we need some new treatments. That is why I run, walk, ride, etc. This April I ran in the Shake it off 5K virtually in Vancouver, completed the SUN Run (10K Run), and tackled / finished the BMO Half Marathon. June 24th I will be running the Scotia Bank Half Marathon, And now riding in Tour de Fox Pacific Northwest, and much more.

My goal is to hit $10,000 in support for the Michael J Fox Foundation. If you can donate up to $5,000 of that I will meet that donation. And remember when you donate to a Team Fox Member 100% of your donation goes to research.

An estimated five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease — the second most common brain disease. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no cure for Parkinson’s disease…yet.

An estimated five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) — a chronic neurodegenerative disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. 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.

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 Pacific Northwest ride proceeds will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s high-impact research programs.

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

Thank you for your support! - Jonathan
