Thank you for visiting! This year, I am participating in the Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) Tour de Fox Cycling Series for Parkinson's Research.
In December 2018, I lost my grandfather to Parkinson's disease. While he suffered for a few years, it wasn't until the end that the disease took over his life, taking away his favorite activities, like jewelry making, tending to rare plants, and cooking.
This year I'm committed to riding 60 miles in support of my grandfather and the 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.
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'd greatly appreciate your help and support me move a cure for Parkinson's disease forward by making a donation today.
Thank you for your support and motivation! - Melissa
