I am participating in The Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) Los Angeles Run/Walk on March 20 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

I will be walking with my team, Rock Steady Boxing (RSB), Monrovia. When I was diagnosed with Parkinson's on June 8th my neurologist urged me to start boxing. I had my gloves on 2 days later. Joining RSB saved me in so many ways and I can't imagine where I would be today without it. Our coaches are so well trained and so experienced. Our class of boxers with PD is compassionate, caring and fun.

I was eager to join the MJFF Run/walk, but not comfortable with sending out an email telling you all I had PD. I did not want to ask for donations. I struggled with this and finally decided I needed to do this for my RSB team and for all who have PD. It is not about me. It is so much bigger.

I have been humbled by your support. I never imagined so many of you would repond so lovingly and generously. I am so moved, and thank you all so very very much. This is a bend in my life's road that I must meet head-on. I do so with resolve, made even stronger by your support!

The following words are offered by the MJFF to further encourage support. I stand behind them and will do whatever I can to support the funding of research.

More than 6 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) — a chronic neurodegenerative disorder. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of PD research, MJFF is working to change this. MJFF is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today.

Your gift will make a real difference: 100 percent of the Los Angeles Run/Walk proceeds will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s high-impact research programs.

Help me move a cure for Parkinson's disease over the finish line by making a donation today.

Thank you for your kindness, support and generosity, and thank you for visiting my page!

Love, Lois
