More cowbell!

Michael J. Fox and daughter Esmé Annabelle, 8, take a break from cheering on — and ringing a cowbell for! — members of Team Fox as they run the New York City Marathon on Sunday.

Team Fox, which Michael launched in January 2006, raises much-needed funds for Parkinson’s Disease research. Diagnosed in 1991, Michael went public with the news in 1998 and has since become a strong advocate for the disease.

Michael, 48, and wife Tracy Pollan are also parents to twins Aquinnah Kathleen and Schuyler Frances, 14, and son Sam Michael, 20.

I was just reading in his last bio when he and Esme first cheered on Team Fox when she was five, and sitting up on his shoulders. He is just a great dad and an inspiration as a father and a role model to others with Parkinson’s, like my mom, who is in the late stages. Go Team Fox!
