Family and friends of Jason Kopacz, Parkinson’s Champion, are hosting the 2nd Annual Team Kopacz Golf Tournament, Dinner and Silent Auction to raise awareness and funds for Parkinson’s Research. We are relentless in our pursuit to end Parkinson’s!
Shoreview, MN, July 10th, 2019 – On Friday July 19th, 2019 at Rum River Golf Course in Ramsey Minnesota, Team Kopacz will host a sold out Golf Tournament to raise funds for the Michael J Fox Foundation and the U of M Foundation who share the goal of finding a cure for Parkinson’s. Following the tournament, a dinner and silent auction along with an awards ceremony will take place in the clubhouse.
Team Kopacz aims to raise $40,000 or more to enable MJFF and the U of M to continue aggressively funding research to find better treatments and a cure for Parkinson’s disease. We fight every day to make sure #PDdidnotwintoday!
The goal to Knock out Parkinson’s is personal for Team Kopacz. Team member Jason Kopacz was diagnosed with Young onset Parkinson’s Disease at the age of 36. From day one, Jason has stayed focused on a cure, “To be clear, we are fighting a tough opponent but we remain optimistic that if we win today, there may be a cure tomorrow… We will use my diagnosis to influence a better tomorrow for everyone affected by Parkinson's.” Jason’s inspiring story was featured at the 2018 Diamond Awards.

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects movement. It is estimated that at least 60,000 Americans are diagnosed each year with less than 4 percent of those being under the age of 50. Current treatments, including diet and exercise, mask symptoms but do not alter or slow disease progression. #findacureforPD
