THE STORY OF CREATIONS PARK

Our RL family felt a desire to give meaning and purpose to the hours we spent in-world. Our dad died with Parkinson's and our mother, Fran Seranade, has it now. To quote her "I may have Parkinson's, but it does not have me." At 88 years young, she is active in Second Life and is thrilled to see herself running and dancing again. Those of us in Second Life can have fun while knowing we are making a difference in the real world.

    DONATIONS

    100% of all donations raised at this event go to Team Fox for The Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. We believe it is important for you to know how your donations are being spent. Our family covers all tier and expenses so that all donations are given to the foundation. We are extremely proud to work with this charity because they have one of lowest overheads and give 89% of every dollar raised to research! They consistently maintain the highest 4 star rating on Charity Navigators.
