As the world’s largest non-profit funder of Parkinson’s research, The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to accelerating a cure for Parkinson’s disease. The Foundation operates under one principle goal: to cure Parkinson’s and go out of business. Consequently, the foundation pursues this cure through an aggressive, highly targeted research program coupled with an active global engagement of scientists, Parkinson’s patients, business leaders, clinical trial participants, donors, and volunteers.
Among those volunteers stands Team Fox – the grassroots community fundraising program at the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF). MJFF accelerates high-impact science through smart risk taking and problem-solving with a commitment to urgency and efficiency.

Parkinson’s is often referred to as a “boutique” disease because it is unique to each person. You cannot predict which symptoms you will get and when you will get them…
Who We Are
In 2016, we formed Team Fox Detroit, or “Team Fox in the D,” to bring the power of Team Fox to the State of Michigan. Team Fox Detroit provides those afflicted with Parkinson’s disease, their families, friends, and loved ones the opportunity to be involved in finding a cure. We are honored to be part of the Team Fox network–the grassroots community of fundraisers for the Michael J. Fox Foundation that has contributed over $70 million to Parkinson’s research to date. Over the past three years our incredible team of volunteers worked tirelessly bringing awareness of PD through various fundraisers here in the Metro Detroit area such as hosting galas, golf outings and various raffles. Each event was unique, inspiring and not only gave us hope but also raised over $550,000 with 100% of the proceeds being allocated to The Michael J. Fox Foundation Research Programs to find a cure.
Every donation no matter the size helps us continue our effort in providing funding to improve the medications, therapies, and research towards a cure for Parkinson’s disease. We are forever grateful for the continued support of our sponsors:
