Active in their efforts to raise awareness and funds, Tonya Walker, blogger for The Shoe Maven, and Rose Babcock along side her husband Chris are Fundraiser hosts for Pints for Parkinson’s. Both are Team Fox members and contributors to the Michael J Fox Foundation. These two teams work diligently to raise awareness and funds for Parkinson’s disease by planning and hosting events in the Central Florida Community. Earlier in the year, The Parkinson’s Association of Central Florida sponsored these community initiatives and donated money towards the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
The awards dinner is an event hosted by the Michael J Fox Foundation to recognize the efforts of those who raise money for Team Fox. “We had an incredible evening at The Team Fox MVP Awards with Pints For Parkinson's Orlando and the rest of our Team Fox family. Parkinson's awareness month is coming to a close, but the fight for a cure continues,” Tonya stated.
Both members of the community had a wonderful time and feel motivated to continue their work in hosting events to raise awareness and funds for Parkinson’s research. To continue following these events be sure to follow The Shoe Maven and Pints for Parkinson’s Orlando on facebook.
