Won't You Join Us?

We're Regular People Like You, In the Fight to Find a Cure.

Five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease – a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone.
There is currently no known cure for Parkinson’s disease.

Team Fox is The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s (MJFF) grassroots community fundraising program. It is made up of thousands of people worldwide who raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s disease research. All funds raised through Team Fox go directly to MJFF to further its mission to accelerate the delivery of life-changing treatments, and ultimately a cure, to people with Parkinson’s disease.

Thank you for your willingness to consider a silent auction donation to Kickin’ Parkinson’s in support of the Michael J. Fox Foundation. We are gearing up for our 7th Annual Kickin’ Parkinson’s event, to be held Thursday, September 22 at Stone Creek Club and Spa in Covington, and I hope you will join us as we continue our fight to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease. Our organization has raised over $840,000 to date and last year’s event was attended by over 400 guests. We expect this year’s evening to be even bigger and better! The night will showcase live music by The Molly Ringwalds, premium bars and specialty drinks, and food by over 25 of our finest local restaurants. One of the most prominent features of our event will be the silent auction, and I am hoping you will consider donating an item to help in our cause.
