Watch Now: Willie and Christina Geist Discuss their Recent Team Fox Fundraiser

On November 1, Willie Geist, MJFF Board member and anchor of NBC's Sunday Today, and his wife Christina, New York Times best-selling author and entrepreneur, were supposed to run the NYC Marathon with Team Fox. Instead, the couple completed their own challenge: the 2020 Half Geistathon. Their efforts, in honor of Willie's father Bill, who sits on MJFF's Patient Council and has lived with Parkinson's for nearly 30 years, have raised over $60,000 (and counting!).

In a recent conversation with MJFF Co-Founder Debi Brooks, Willie and Christina share how they stayed motivated throughout the process, the impact of Parkinson's disease on their family, and the role everyone can play in a cure. They also reflect on lessons learned in Michael J. Fox's new book, No Time Like the Future: An Optimist Considers Mortality.

Now more than ever, our community is showing up with creativity and optimism to move us closer to a world without Parkinson's disease. Before the year ends, help keep critical research driving forward. Donate HERE.
