Help Find a Cure for Parkinson’s Disease
Love-CFSBK-long-timer Steph P. is embarking on her latest Team Fox adventure this Sunday, May 18th! She’s doing a one day Rim2Rim Grand Canyon hike with 20 other Team Fox members to raise money for Parkinson’s research. It’s a 24-mile trek covering over 6,000 ft in elevation, starting at the South Rim and finishing at the North Rim. The team has raised $35,000 so far and she’s set a personal goal to raise $10,000 and is almost a third of the way there. Not only does Steph work for Team Fox, the grassroots fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation, but she also fundraises on her own in honor of her dad who’s had Parkinson’s for over 13 years now. If you want to help Steph out, check out her personal fundraising page here!
Movie Night at CFSBK TONIGHT
CFSBK’s Movie Night returns TONIGHT at 8:15pm after Open Gym. It’s all the same details as usual—bring your own alcohol, fold-up chairs, snacks, and whatever else suits your fancy—but we’ve added a twist this time by inviting all Brooklyn boxes to join us. We’re screening Evil Dead, so come ready to be horrified.
- Happy birthday, Mayo A. and Jason K.!
- CFSBK’s softball team, Las Calaveras, has their third game tonight at 6:15pm at the Red Hook ball fields. They remain 1-1 after getting rained out last week. Godspeed/good luck/break a leg (but please don’t)!
