Andy and Dana aim to raise $5,000 or more to enable the Foundation to continue aggressively funding research to find better treatments and a cure for Parkinson’s disease. Team Fox is the Foundation’s project for supporting grassroots community fundraisers working to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s research.

Nearly five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease - a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder whose symptoms typically progress from mild tremors to complete physical incapacitation. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. Current treatments mask symptoms but do not alter or slow disease progression. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. The annual economic cost of Parkinson’s in the U.S. is estimated to exceed $25 billion.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research is dedicated to ensuring the development of a cure for Parkinson’s disease within this lifetime through an aggressively funded research agenda.
