BENEFITING: MICHAEL J FOX FOUNDATION FOR PARKINSONS RESEARCH
ORGANIZER: Team Fox Louisiana
This year, I'm running in the Crescent City Classic in order to raise money for a cure for Parkinson's Disease. A friend of our family has Parkinson's, and he started a local fund raising group called Kickin Parkinson's, which is affiliated with the Michael J Fox foundation.
100% of the money donated to the Michael J Fox foundation goes to find a cure. The cost to run the foundation is covered by a benefactor, so each dollar they raise goes straight to research.
The Crescent City Classic selected Kickin Parkinson's as one its charity partners this year. So I'm running, even though I'm not a runner, and I'm trying to raise $500 for Parkinson's Research.
If you'd like to help, please donate below. If you'd like to run and commit to raising a few bucks yourself, email me for more information.
