About this Event

**YOU MUST VISIT FFNDR.ORG/EVENTS TO REGISTER!**

In September 2014, while hosting a company Christmas party, Tim and his colleagues were discussing ideas for a Team Fox fundraiser. It was decided that a golf tournament could be held at one of the local courses in The Woodlands. So, 2015 was to be the first Birdies Fore Parkinson's Research (BFPR) golf tournament. The goal was set to raise $10,000-$15,000 while having a great time with friends and family. When then-President of Orthofix Spine Implants, Ray Fujikawa, heard Tim talking about the tournament, he asked Tim how Orthofix could help. Tim told Ray that he would be honored to have Orthofix as the title sponsor, and Orthofix agreed. That first year saw BFPR raise an astounding $32,000 for Team Fox and The Michael J. Fox Foundation For Parkinson's Research. Year two was even larger as BFPR raised $45,000. Year three saw new changes as we moved our venue to Willowcreek Golf Club. In 2017, BFPR raised an astonishing $73,000. The 2018 version of BFPR raised $61,500, with $54,000 going to Team Fox and $6,100 to Texas Children's Hospital Neurologic Research Institute. They are doing tremendous work in the field of Pediatric Neurological Disease, but along the way, they are discovering some new possibilities for the treatment of "adult neurological diseases", such as Parkinson's. So, after four years, BFPR has raised $210,000 for research for a cure for Parkinson's.

This year, we are setting the bar high for 2019. Beginning now through October 21, 2019, approximately 100 of you will sign up to play in the 2019 BFPR tournament. If every one of you raises $100 per month in pledges, we can raise an incredible $100,000 from that alone! To sweeten the pot, there will be a fantastic award for the largest fundraiser for 2019. Our goal without these donations is $80,000, and if we were to get $50,00 in donations from our players, then $130,000 is not out of the question. Please join the fight, and let's find a cure in my lifetime.
