April is Parkinson's Awareness Month — a busy and special time for Team Fox as we challenge our members to make Parkinson's Awareness Month a million dollar month for critical research. With 100 percent of Team Fox proceeds going directly to research, we want to encourage new and returning members to boost their impact on funding projects that will speed better treatments for Parkinson's.
As our community at-large strives to make April a million dollar month, many of our members have already planned exciting ways to engage their local communities through unique, create-your-own events.
With nearly 70 events scheduled this month, there's bound to be something coming to a community near you. Check out these exciting events and join in on the April fun!
