Let Team Fox cheer you on to the finish line in an upcoming fall marathon! Now is the time to take on the challenge of running 26.2 miles for Parkinson's research. Seasoned runner and Team Fox Mentor, Matt Mitchell, ran his first NYC Marathon for Team Fox in 2010 for his father who had Parkinson's. He ran again in 2011 and plans to join us for the three-peat this November. Matt also recently qualified for Boston with a phenomenal time of 3:03 in the 2012 Paris Marathon. Regarding training, Matt feels strongly that it's not just a physical transformation you will see.
Training for a marathon is journey. It will challenge you like nothing else can. It will change you. It will demand things from you that you didn't even know you had. With the proper preparation and commitment, the experience will have you believing in yourself like never before. It will embolden and empower you to take on the world, and inspire you to new heights. You can take on this challenge in any of our upcoming events!
