Push 4 Parkinson’s raises funds for Parkinson’s foundations, as well as awareness to the benefits of intense exercise for those with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Our mission is to expose those with PD to the more than 15,000 CrossFit® affiliates that can provide scaled workouts and a supportive , encouraging environment to help individuals manage the disease.
The FoxWOD started in 2018 with 110 athletes from six local CrossFit® affiliates participating in Panama City Beach, Florida. FoxWOD 2019 will expand to several sites in Florida and Georgia. Athletes will complete a 45 minute workout which will be long, grueling and mimic some of the obstacles those with Parkinson’s face. The workout, unlike Parkinson’s disease, can be scaled to each athlete’s potential. April is Parkinson’s Awareness month, so come join team FoxWOD 2019!!
