Trans-America Challenge – In September, 2012, Alex Flynn, diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2008 at the age of 36, will race across America. He’ll bike, climb, run, paddle, and swim more than 3,500 miles from Los Angeles to New York as fast as he can. Along the way he’ll climb to the top of Mt. Whitney, run across scorching Death Valley, bike the famous course of Rt. 66, kayak across the expanse of Lake Erie, run down historic Broadway in New York City, then dive into the Hudson River and swim to the Statue of Liberty. This would be an epic challenge for anyone who attempted it, but on top of everything else, Flynn will have to deal with the constant effects of Parkinson’s disease on his body. Follow Alex’s inspiring journey and help him raise $50,000 for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research.

New York City Marathon:  Best friends Chloé Hurley and Morissa Sobelson will run the NYC Marathon to support Team Fox and raise funds for Parkinson’s disease research.  Follow as they train and help them reach their $6,000 fundraising goal.
