WELCOME TO MY TEAM FOX HOME PAGE!

For the 3rd year in a row, I am participating in the Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) Tour de Fox Cycling Series for Parkinson's Research.


Just over 3 years ago at the age of 55, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. I had little knowledge of what this diagnosis meant, but over time I have discovered it is a cruel condition that affects different people in different ways and the severity can vary from day to day. What my Neurologist could not tell me is “Why” I have this disease. There are no clear answers as to why anyone has Parkinson’s Disease and at present, there is no cure for this progressive illness.

Today, with the help of research, exercise and medications, I am able to live a fulfilling life.

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


In order to help find a cure for PD, I will be riding 52 miles through Sonoma County.

Why?

For every single person that has ever been diagnosed with PD
For every single person that has yet to be diagnosed with PD
For every single person that has a friend or loved one with PD
For every single person who has struggled with PD or has seen the effects of PD
For every single person that is committed to finding a cure for PD

How can you help?

Sign up and donate.

With support from family and friends, my goal is to raise $5000 that will go towards research in developing advanced medications, treatments, and ultimately, finding a cure for PD – in our lifetime!

Your donation means that you also care about finding a cure for PD. No matter how big or small, your donation means that someday, PD will no longer be a crippling disease.

How to donate?

Follow the link on this page to my fundraising donation page. 100% of the proceeds go directly to the Michael J. Fox Foundation's research programs.


THANK YOU! Thank you for your hope, your support and donations.

David
