Sept. 19 Pancakes for Parkinson’s goal: $100,000

The annual Pancakes for Parkinson’s is a fun and tasty event that benefits Delaware Team Fox and The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. On Saturday, Sept. 19, from 8 a.m. to noon at Sanford School in Hockessin, join local families whose loved ones have been affected by Parkinson’s, and support the organization that raises money for a Parkinson’s cure. A dozen griddle teams will be on hand. Each gift will go toward this year’s goal of $100,000.

Since 2008, Delaware Team Fox has raised awareness and research money—nearly $500,000—to advance treatments for Parkinson’s disease. You can participate by creating or joining a griddle team or by donating to support a griddle team and/or attending the event. Just in case you forget to donate ahead of time, admission is a $10 donation per person on arrival. Enjoy all-you-can-eat pancakes, family fun, kids’ activities, music and more.

This year, an anonymous Michael J. Fox Foundation supporter is covering all the costs incurred by the Foundation to run the Team Fox program, so that every penny donated to Delaware Pancakes for Parkinson’s can go straight to high-impact research programs to help speed a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
