9th Annual Hacker’s Cup Golf Tournament


Hackers Cup LogoThe entire Cenla community is invited to participate in the 9th Annual Hacker’s Cup Golf Tournament to benefit the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research on Saturday July 26th at the Alexandria Golf and Country Club.


Today, over 5 million people are living with Parkinson’s Disease.  As members of Team Fox, my wife, Kelly and I are part of a grass roots campaign to raise money for the MJFF.  Just over six years ago, I lost my grandmother, Della Matthews, to this horrible disease.  Our efforts this year will be dedicated to her memory and we would greatly appreciate your support.


The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to ensuring the development of better treatments, and ultimately a cure, through an aggressively funded research agenda.  MJFF is focused on science with the greatest potential to improve the lives of the millions of people worldwide living with Parkinson’s. The Foundation is committed to ensuring that its capital drives research overlooked by government and industry funders.  MJFF’s in-house research team, extensively trained in neuroscience and project management, is built to target resources where they are needed most to pay off for patients faster.  We believe without fail that our goal is within reach—but we can’t get there without your support.
