There are always causes to get involved with or become a part of. Sometimes these causes find us. When my mom was faced with Parkinson's, I wanted to fix it. I wanted to somehow help her. That's why Fonda and the CRB became members of Team Fox, the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. With the release of our first album Kiss Me, a portion of all the sales goes directly to this cause. One of the songs I've written on the album is called Hangin' On To Me. I've dedicated this song to my mom.
One beautiful night, she came to one of our shows for the first time. As I started to sing the first few words of this song...my mom stood up...and she danced. I wish you all could have seen it. Please join us in our fight to help make Parkinson's a thing of the past. Who knows? You just might see my mom dancing.
Team Fox was launched in January 2006 as a way for The Michael J. Fox Foundation to support the heroes all over the country who already had made it their personal mission to find uniquely creative and fun ways to raise funds for Parkinson's research. Team Fox provides guidance, tools and resources for the thousands of amazing 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.
In Team Fox's first five years, members raised an astounding $12 million. This diverse community of changemakers continues to grow and inspire us every day. There is no limit to the creativity and optimism with which the heroes of Team Fox set about making Parkinson's disease a thing of the past. Click on the logo below to help fight.
