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. My father had Parkinson’s and passed away last year. I had always heard of this disease and the tremors, but through my dad’s experience, I learned that there are many different symptoms. Looking back, depression was one of his, and my family and I had no idea. He didn’t shake, but he did have trouble with his gait, and then it felt like all of the sudden there was a whole slew of degeneration. I wish we had known more because maybe we could’ve gotten him help and treatment before things went south so fast.
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.
Your gift can 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.
Help me move a cure for Parkinson's disease forward by making a donation today. My goal is $500, and I’m going to ride at least 8.333333 hours (a minute per dollar - make me ride more) between 8/29-10/13. 10/13 is the anniversary of my father getting his wings.😇
Thank you for your support! - Sandy
