Team Fox Louisiana (aka Kickin’ Parkinsons) for Parkinson’s Research

THE STORY:

Friends,

This year, I'm running in the Crescent City Classic in order to raise money for a cure for Parkinson's Disease. A friend, Quentin Dastugue, 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 of its charity partners this year. Help me blowout my goal of $500 for Parkinson's Research.

 

If you'd like to help, please visit the link below. If you'd like to run and commit to raising a few bucks yourself, email me for more information.

 

When Quentin Dastugue was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2010, his first action was to volunteer for a Clinical Trial Study using the Fox Trial Finder.  It was during this process that he learned more about the Michael J Fox Foundation and its unrelenting quest to speed a cure of Parkinson’s disease, the world’s second most common degenerative brain disease, impacting nearly 5 million people worldwide. To date, the MJFF has awarded over $400 million in grants and is the largest nonprofit funder of Parkinson’s research in the world.  For those of us who know and love Quentin, his actions are not surprising as he has always responded to adversity and challenge with dignity, action and a great sense of optimism and hope.

Quentin’s next step was to create Kickin’ Parkinson’s  in support of the MJFF joining 1,600 other Team Fox grassroots efforts around the country.  In its third year, Kickin’ Parkinson’s became the 3rd  highest Team Fox fundraiser in the country, raising over $300,000 in 2014.  Due to a grant, 100% of these funds go directly into research for a cure and for medical therapies to alleviate the symptoms for those living with Parkinson’s Disease.

See you on April 4th!
