For the past 4 years, I have participated in the Michael J Fox Tour de Fox Wine Country ride to help find a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
Due to COVID-19, The Michael J. Fox Foundation has canceled all in-person Tour de Fox Cycling Series events in 2020.
Just because the ride is cancelled this year, we are not putting the brakes on our progress. We are shifting gears and going virtual!
On Saturday, August 29th, Virtual Tour de Fox communities everywhere will unite to pedal toward our common goal: A cure for Parkinson’s disease.
My goal is to ride a 42 mile round-trip course along the scenic American river from Sacramento to the historic town of Old Folsom, CA historicfolsom.org
A few facts about PD:
• Five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s Disease – a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder
• As many as one million Americans live with Parkinson's disease, which is more than the combined number of people diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy and Lou Gehrig's disease
• In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone
• There is currently no known cure for Parkinson’s Disease
