Who is Jim? Jim Warsaw, founder of the Warsaw Center for Sports Marketing at the University of Oregon, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in late 1993. For 16 years, he was the inspiration and energy behind everything the Warsaw center stands for – passion, integrity and leadership. Tragically, Jim lost his battle with Parkinson’s on April 22, 2009.
“Jim Warsaw was an inspirational leader to us all. He will be missed dearly, but we can all be thankful for how he touched our lives. Make him proud by keeping his vision and principles alive.” - Learn more about Jim
What is Parkinson’s? Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder of unknown cause that affects nearly 5 million individuals worldwide. In the United States, 60,000 new case of PD will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. Currently available treatments temporarily mask symptoms while the disease continues to progress.
Where do you funds go? Your fundraising will go towards helping to find a cure for Parkinson’s through the Michael J. Fox Foundation. The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today.
