Fox Foundation, CurePSP, the Parkinson’s Foundation (formerly the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation), and the Parkinson’s Unity Walk. The Light of Day Foundation also supports “boots on the ground” programs designed to help people with these diseases live better lives on a daily basis, including co-sponsored projects with Joan Dancy & PALS, with a mission to help New Jersey residents in nearby Monmouth and Ocean Counties afflicted with ALS by providing a better quality of life for them and their families.
In 2018, Light of Day WinterFest raised over a half million dollars for the fourth straight year, catapulting its 18-year cumulative total past the $5 million mark and L.O.D. Winterfest 1019 is expected to push the total past $5.5 million.
