Gibby and Friends vs. Parky Fundraiser

Gibby and Friends vs. Parky Fundraiser

Michigan State has always been a huge part of my life (Go Green, Go White). In conjunction with the decision by the University to raise my #23 into the Ring of Honor at Spartan Stadium, a truly one of a kind and special event was organized by generous supporters from West Michigan. The “Gibby and Friends vs. Parky” fundraiser was held before the game against Notre Dame on September 23, 2017, and exceeded our goals by raising $1.2 million. Proceeds slated to benefit MSU, KGF, Van Andel Institute, and Spectrum Health, who will collaborate on Parkinson’s research trials.

Kirk Gibson Golf Classic 2017

Kirk Gibson Foundation Parkinson's Disease Fundraiser

I never considered myself much of a golfer, until I found out I had Parkinson’s. Since then, it has become an almost daily part of my routine, and the exercise and coordination it requires helps me beat Parkinson’s a little bit at a time. I started the Kirk Gibson Classic Golf outing in 2016 and it brings together individuals from all over the country for a day of fundraising, golf, and most importantly, laughs.

The center provides excellence in treatment, research and education for patients and families affected by Parkinson’s. To date, Celebrity Fight Night has raised in excess of 127 million dollars.
