I did it all for the Cathy.

If you're reading this, thanks so much for taking the time to click and stop by. For the 3rd year in a row, I'm riding in the Michael J. Fox Foundation's Tour de Fox Cycling Series for Parkinson's Research.

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, The Fox Foundation is working to change this. The Michael J. Fox Foundation 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.

I'm behind the ball on my fundraising this year. As many of you know, it's been a pretty intense few months for our beloved Cathy. She's cleared her head (too soon?) and has been busting my balls in the nicest way that only Cathy could to get fundraising for my ride!

Even if I haven't been emailing, I have been training. My legs are much better prepared for 55 miles than they were last year. If you haven't heard my sob tale, this is the second year I'll do the ride with my childhood friend, Michael Keeney. Michael's now a serious cyclist who trains, races, and eats unprepared recreational cyclists (yours truly) for breakfast. Last year I could barely walk after keeping up with his pace for 55 miles! Michael's also fundraising in honor of his dad, Bob Keeney, who has Parkinson's.

I'm asking that you give what you can. Your gift will make a real difference: Tour de Fox Wine Country ride proceeds will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s high-impact research programs. Our team has grown to 4 members this year with the hope of making a significant donation to the Fox Found' Fund. Help us make that happen.

We all adore her, and she's never done anything but shower love onto everyone she's met (with maybe the exception of a few of my ex-girlfriends...mothers can tell). Help me move a cure for Parkinson's disease forward by making a donation today in honor of my sweetheart mom, or anyone else in your life who's living or passed with Parkinson's.

Thank you for your support!

Beau, Cathy, Randy, and all the Dad Watts!
