As ultra-athlete and Michael J. Fox Foundation staffer Sam Fox (no relation to Michael) journeys on a 14,000-mile biking and hiking adventure to support Parkinsonís research, he also marks his 28th†birthday today.
In honor of his birthday weekend, when we raise $18,000 for Tour de Fox from now through Sunday, June 28, an anonymous donor will give an additional $10,000†ó†making it $28,000 for 28 years.
Sam and his crew are entering their fourth week biking and climbing across the United States, including the highest point in the contiguous 48 states, with the goal of raising $1 million for research. Alongside them are Parkinsonís patients and families, inspired to unite the Parkinsonís community. They are currently traveling in the Southeast, with athletic and celebratory events throughout the weekend.
Wish Sam a happy birthday by donating and unlocking this additional gift. 100 percent of Tour de Fox proceeds will go directly to research programs and will contribute to Samís $1 million goal for the Tour.
Then, send him a birthday greeting on Twitter and inspire your friends and family to support Tour de Fox and Parkinson's research.
