An estimated six million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease —the fasting growing neurological disorder and second-most common after Alzheimer’s disease. Currently, there is no known cure or treatment to slow or stop the progression of Parkinson’s. Together, we can change this.

Team Fox is the grassroots community fundraising program of The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF). Since its inception, MJFF has operated with one single-urgent goal: putting ourselves out of business and finding better treatments and a cure for Parkinson’s through an aggressively funded research agenda. 

Team Fox members worldwide have been turning their passions and interests into opportunities to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s research since 2006. “Have you ever noticed that optimism, energy, and generosity are contagious? There’s something about watching someone you know take on a cause that makes you want to get involved too. That’s the big idea behind Team Fox,” says Michael J. Fox.
