In 2003, 27-year-old Jimmy Choi was diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson’s disease. After a scary fall involving his infant son, Jimmy vowed to take back his life, participating in clinical trials and physical research initiatives. Boosting his physical activity had a profound effect on Jimmy’s mental health. In 2012, he completed his first 5K, and then later would run the Chicago Marathon as a member of Team Fox. Today he is an MVP Team Fox athlete who has run, cycled, and swam in countless races to raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation. In 2017, Jimmy brought his determination into the homes of Americans by participating in American Ninja Warrior Seasons 9 and 10. Jimmy and his family have raised over $250K towards finding a cure for Parkinson’s.
