About Team Fox

Team Fox members have raised nearly $80 million for Parkinson's research since 2006. You too can be part of this passionate community of change-makers who are bringing us closer to a cure.

Team Fox is the grassroots community fundraising program of The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Since 2006, Team Fox members worldwide have been turning their passions and interests into opportunities to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson's research. Every penny donated by Team Fox members goes straight to our high-impact research programs to help speed a cure for Parkinson's disease.

 

 

Who is Team Fox?
