The first physician to launch a successful career in the healthcare investment sector, Mitchell invests in healthcare companies as the founder of Consonance Capital in New York. Mitchell Blutt also formerly served on the board of directors for the Michael J. Fox Foundation, which welcomes members of the public to contribute toward finding a cure for Parkinson’s by joining Team Fox for athletic events such as the 2017 Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series.
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series began with the simple idea of a marathon with bands positioned along the course to cheer on participants. Celebrating its 20th year, the event has grown into a nationwide series of marathons consisting of a weekend of entertainment and runs to support participating charities. The world-class Health and Fitness Expo takes place alongside the marathon. The event concludes with a concert featuring big name musical performers.
Team Fox will participate in two upcoming marathons in the 2017 Rock n’ Roll Series: one in Brooklyn, New York, on October 14 and one in San Antonio, Texas, on December 2 through December 3. Runners who become a member of Team Fox will receive guaranteed entry into the race, running singlet for race day, and a personal fundraising page. Runners must commit to a specific fundraising goal based on race participation and those who meet their goal will receive a commemorative medal.
