The 2020 NYC Marathon has been cancelled due to Covid-19, but the search for a cure for Parkinson's Disease continues. Although we will not be running the NYC Marathon until 2021, we are actively seeking donations now as funds are urgently needed to continue the Michael J. Fox Foundation's aggressive research agenda.
In lieu of the 2020 NYC Marathon, we have organized the TEAM FOX TOUGH 2020 virtual New York Marathon Relay on November 1, 2020, the date of the planned 2020 NYC Marathon. Please join us in one leg of the relay and/or support one of the runners on our team (click below on the runner you wish to support) or make a general team donation. Thanks in advance for your support!!.
TEAM FOX is the grassroots community fundraising arm of the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. 100% of dollars raised through TEAM FOX go directly to fund high-impact research programs to help speed a cure for Parkinson's disease. Research funded through TEAM FOX has significantly advanced the understanding of Parkinson's disease, and has resulted in improved treatment options for patients with Parkinson's disease - A CURE IS IN REACH!!
Please help us support The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research by making a contribution to our team and sharing this page with your family and friends. Thanks for helping us advance The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research's great cause!
Together, we can make a difference!
