Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research

About The Michael J. Fox Foundation

MJFF is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today. Our strategic approach targets research that is often overlooked by government and industry funders, but that has the greatest potential to accelerate the delivery of better treatments — and, ultimately, a cure — to the more than 5 million people worldwide with Parkinson's disease.

Team Fox was launched in January 2006 as a way for The Michael J. Fox Foundation to support the heroes all over the world who already had made it their personal mission to find uniquely creative and fun ways to raise funds for Parkinson's research. Team Fox provides guidance, tools and resources for the thousands of amazing people all over the world who are walking, running, baking, party planning, paddling, pedaling, and dancing to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson's research.

Since Team Fox launched in 2006, members have raised an astounding $22 million. This diverse community of changemakers continues to grow and inspire us every day. There is no limit to the creativity and optimism with which the heroes of Team Fox set about making Parkinson's disease a thing of the past.

We believe without fail that our goal is within reach — but we can't get there without your support.

Run or walk to help find a cure for Parkinson's! Choose the distance that is right for you — participate in the full marathon, half marathon or 5K — you can fundraise at any distance. We suggest the following fundraising levels:
