Lisa Brodrick, ERYT 500, RCYT and Asbury Park school teacher of over 13 years, is taking on an amazing community project for the organization, Global Camps Africa.  She will be traveling to Johannesburg to give the Radiant Child Yoga levels 1 - 3 teacher training to the counselors for Global Camps Africa, affectionately known as Vochellis, at Camp Sizani.  This is a wonderful opportunity for the Vochelli counselors (many of whom grew up in the townships of Johannesburg as well).    

Lisa’s mission is to empower the youth leaders of Global Camps with the Radiant Child Yoga teacher training, giving them life skills and hope for understanding their innate human potential.  She will then mentor the Vochelli Counselors as they integrate yoga and healing practices at the camp with hundreds of children coming from areas throughout the townships of Johannesburg. This training will facilitate the exponential growth of sharing and empowerment of all youths through yoga. Lisa believes that each human has the capacity to experience hope, healing and find inner wisdom.  Thousands of children will be taught by the forty Vochellis Lisa will be training and mentoring.

Located in a mountain area outside of Johannesburg, Camp Sizani provides education, HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention and crucial life skills all wrapped up in the spirit of fun and camaraderie.   Several times per year, hundreds of children from some of South Africa’s poorest townships hardest hit by the HIV/AIDS crisis come together for several magical days at camp to learn, to laugh, and to love again. Global Camps has provided camp and education for over 4,000 children since 2003.

Chris Hartsgrove, manager of Toast Asbury Park and a member of Team Fox, aims to raise money to help enable the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research to continue aggressively funding research to find better treatments and a cure for Parkinson’s disease.

“I chose to participate in the organization of this 5k as part of Team Fox because of my personal experience with family members who suffered from Parkinson's, and I wanted to do something personally to further the Foundation’s mission. They are funding cutting-edge research to bring meaningful advances in treatments and eventually a cure to people affected by this disease,” said Mr. Hartsgrove.

Over five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease, a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder whose symptoms typically progress from mild tremors to complete physical incapacitation. In the United States, an estimated 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. Current treatments mask symptoms but do not alter or slow disease progression.

Team Fox started in 2006 as the community fundraising  division of The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Currently, Team Fox has over 1500 active members and has raised more than $22 million toward accelerating a cure for Parkinson’s disease and improved therapies for those living with the condition today. The Michael J. Fox Foundation, the largest private funder of Parkinson’s Research, pursues its goals through an aggressively funded, highly targeted research program, and has invested more than $313 million in research to date.
