Welcome to Team Fox Detroit

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.

Team Fox Detroit is proud to be one of thousands of Team Fox members worldwide to bring awareness and fundraise locally for The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF). 100% Of Team Fox proceeds will go directly to research efforts to help speed a cure and improved treatments and therapies for Parkinson’s patients. Founded in 2016, we are proud to have contributed over $1M to these programs. We invite you to join us as we continue supporting research for a cure for Parkinson’s.

Team Fox Detroit is a grassroots community fundraising program for The Michael J. Fox Foundation. We are accountable and transparent to our donors. We support The Michael J.
