Thank you for visiting my page! This year, I am participating in the Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) Tour de Fox Cycling Series for Parkinson's Research.
Here in Springfield we have formed Team Bell in honor of our good friend Andy, who is giving Parkinson's a run for its money. Team Bell is made up in part of members of Ye Olde Spokes Bicycle Club. One of our traditions is to celebrate co-founder Ed Leventhal's Birthday with a ride of the length, in Ks (used to be miles), of his age, 75 this year. This will be our Tour de Fox ride. It will take place on Labor Day weekend ending at Mother Stewart's Brewery.
I am asking you to consider (no, actually to really give) a gift to Team Bell of either a fixed (and embarrassingly large) amount or an amount based on how many K's or miles or furlongs I ride. Remember the more disgustingly large the amount the better. Corporate contributions, if you are Corporate, will be accepted.
I didn't write the rest of this but it is good info if somewhat boring.
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.
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.
Help me move a cure for Parkinson's disease forward by making a humongous donation today.You're getting the idea, we want to raise a lot of money.
Thank you for your ridiculously generous support! - NOONAN
