Team Fox: Team Fox members have raised nearly $100 million for Parkinson’s research since 2006. You too can be part of this passionate community of change-makers who are bringing us closer to a cure. Every penny donated by Team Fox members goes straight to our high-impact research programs to help speed a cure for Parkinson’s disease.

Make a Gift: Even in the face of tremendous challenges, our promise to push Parkinson’s research forward remains steadfast. We operate with focus and determination in everything we do. We won’t stop until a cure is found. Support us today to help us deploy at much research as possible in 2023.

Buddy Network: The Parkinson’s Buddy Network, an online platform designed to connect members of the Parkinson’s community, including patients, caregivers and loved ones of those who have or had Parkinson’s. The platform will allow users to make meaningful connections, engage in important dialogue, find PD resources and build new support systems. During a time of increased distancing and isolation, a tool like this has never been more important or necessary. You can visit, create a profile and start using the platform. If you have any questions at all or feedback, you can reach out to me directly or the Buddy Network team at
