Beer and funding for Parkinson\u2019s research made an unlikely duo at Nod Hill Brewery in Ridgefield last week. Organizers Katie Boland and Chris Tracey put together the \u201cPints for Parkinson\u2019s\u201d fundraiser to raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation.A $10 donation bought participants a mug for one beer, donated by the brewery. Gallo Ristorante provided food for the event.\u201cAll of the money raised goes to research,\u201d said Boland, who plans to run in the New York Marathon.Tracey said he was diagnosed with the condition, a neurodegenerative disorder, five years ago. Last year, he received a treatment that involved implanting a computer in his chest, with wiring that runs deep inside his brain. He said the moment the computer was switched on, the severe tremors he had experienced instantly improved.\u201cI\u2019m living proof of what research can do,\u201d Tracey said.
