For the fourth year in a row we’ve been blessed to be called upon to cover an event for the Michael J Fox Foundation ; which recognizes the leading fundraisers in the foundation. Many of these people, (referred to as TeamFox Members) have donated countless hours of their time, organized magnificent fundraising events, and/or participated in an event supported by donations. One of the largest opportunities that many TeamFox members participate in is any of the major marathons across the United States. Raising funds for the miles they run, etc. The fight against Parkinsons is very close to our hearts as Jennifer’s grandfather fought a difficult battle with it near the end of his life. Our prayers, thoughts, and energy go to the amazing team that help organize the foundation around this important cause and especially Michael for being the eternal optimist and “Always Looking Up“.
Channel 7 News was there this year reporting on a story about the foundation and the lighting of the Empire State Building in orange for Parkinson’s Research.
The Family above was also on FOX News this past Sunday with a story about the “Ultimate Show Of Support” that Karen’s husband Marc has done to help research and development find missing pieces (biomarkers) to the Parkinson’s puzzle. Check out this amazing story on this News Segment (and our above photo included on the news)
Cheers, Tears, and Gratitude filled the room during the slideshow of the achievements of the past year and the $3.9 Million that TeamFox has raised.
Here is the crew that made the event happen and drive the organization into new frontiers.
