Horizons: The Michael J, Fox Foundation

February 19th, 2011 by | No comments

With the release of the second episode of the Back to the Future game I thought we should take a look at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. As you may know, Michael J. Fox (who plays Marty McFly in the Back to the Future movies) was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991. In 1998 he revealed his condition to the public and has since started The Michael J. Fox Foundation to help raise money to research a cure for Parkinson’s and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today.

If you wish to help, you can join Team Fox which was founded in 2006 as a way for The Michael J. Fox Foundation to help people all over the world who are walking, running, baking, party planning, paddling, pedaling, and dancing to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s research.

Please give this serious thought if you have a little extra money and want to help other people. You never know if someone you love, or even yourself, is affected by Parkinson’s one day. If you want to help, but don’t want to organize anything then you can go here and make a quick donation. Any amount, big or small, will help.
