What Is Team Fox?
Team Fox is The Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) grassroots community fundraising program. It is made up of thousands of people worldwide who raise funds and awareness for Parkinson's disease research. All funds raised through Team Fox go directly to MJFF to further its mission to accelerate the delivery of life-changing treatments, and ultimately a cure, to people with Parkinson's disease.
Prominent donors cover the costs incurred by the foundation to run the Team Fox program, allowing every penny raised by Team Fox members to go directly to the high-impact research programs being conducted by the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
The Team Fox community is made up of over 4,000 dedicated change-makers who flip pancakes, host concerts and galas, bike cross country, or organize 5K races (just like Jim's Jog) to raise the money we need to speed a cure for Parkinson's.
