EHE International Supports The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research
Date:8/6/2009

-Window display raises awareness of a disease that affects one million Americans-

NEW YORK, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research (MJFF) is teaming up with EHE International to raise awareness of the fight against Parkinson's disease. For the month of August, EHE International has kindly donated a 115-square-foot window space at 10 Rockefeller Plaza to showcase the many ways that ordinary citizens can support the Foundation through its grassroots fundraising arm, Team Fox.

"Team Fox members play a critical role in our efforts to push Parkinson's disease research forward," says Katie Hood, CEO of MJFF. "EHE International's generous donation will help our Foundation reach new members who are eager to support our work to find a cure for this devastating disease."

Parkinson's disease is a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder that affects roughly one million Americans and six million people worldwide and is the 14th leading cause of death worldwide. While the average age of onset is sixty, the disease can strike patients as early as age 30. There is no known cure for Parkinson's disease. Current treatments mask some symptoms but bring serious side effects, lose efficacy over time, and do not slow or alter disease progression.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation was founded in 2000 to speed the development of better Parkinson's treatments -- and to ultimately find a cure -- through an aggressively funded research agenda. To date, the Foundation has funded nearly $150 million in research toward a cure. Over $6 million has been raised through Team Fox, launched by the Foundation in 2006 to support those all over the country who had already made it their personal mission to raise money for MJFF in unique, creative and fun ways.
