In 2015, Jake’s Ride and The Michael J. Fox Foundation joined forces to build upon past successes and reach even higher in their mutual goal of defeating dystonia and Parkinson’s disease.
The foundation, headquartered in NYC, is the world’s largest private funder of Parkinson’s research. Since its founding in 2000, the foundation has funded more than $450 million in research.
Team Fox is the foundation’s grassroots community fundraising program. Thousands of Team Fox members worldwide have helped raise over $35 million to support Parkinson’s research.
Since 2008 Jake’s Ride has raised over $2.5 million, and will now place among the top Team Fox fundraising events. Jake also serves as a Team Fox junior spokesperson.
