April is Parkinson's Awareness Month -- the perfect time to join The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) in generating support for Parkinson's research and our relentless search for better treatments and a cure.
It takes an entire team to strategize, support and execute the progress we strive for, and MJFF is grateful for our incredible network of Team Fox members whose community fundraising efforts play an integral role in helping push the needle toward a cure. The passion and creativity that our members bring to engaging their networks is truly unmatched.
Last year, we challenged our Team Fox community to channel their collective efforts to make April a million dollar month for Parkinson's research. With donations and event proceeds totaling over $820,000 -- 100 percent of which went directly to MJFF's research programs -- our community came incredibly close. And this year, we're more driven than ever to cross that goal line!
Will you join Team Fox in raising more than just awareness in April? Whether you host an event, or attend one in your area, together let's make Parkinson's Awareness Month a million dollar month for critical research.
Here are three ways to get involved:
- Start a Team Fox fundraising campaign and ask your friends, family and coworkers to help us raise $1 million for Parkinson's research in the month of April. Send an email, post to your social media accounts and help spread the word any way you can!
- Find an existing Team Fox event in your area to support. Hundreds of fundraisers are already planned across the country.
- Host your own fundraiser in your community! Team Fox can provide you with the tools, ideas and support you need to put together an event of your own this month or any time in 2017. We will also be posting ideas throughout the month of April on Facebook and Twitter to motivate and inspire your own fundraising efforts.
There's never been a better time to join Team Fox! Together, our voices can have a powerful impact. Help make April a million dollar month and bring us another step closer to a cure.
