About Parkinson’s Over 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. In the United States, an estimated 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. Current treatments mask symptoms but do not alter or slow disease progression. About Team Fox Team Fox started in 2006 as the community fundraising division of The Michael J. Fox Foundation. In 2015, Team Fox had over 3,000 active members and since inception has raised more than $45million toward accelerating a cure for Parkinson’s disease and improved therapies for those living with the condition today. The Michael J. Fox Foundation, the largest private funder of Parkinson’s Research, pursues its goals through an aggressively funded, highly targeted research program, and has invested more than $525 million in research to date.
