“The power of the Parkinson’s community to bring about change can’t be overstated."
- Michael J. Fox

Today’s Tour de Fox Series celebrates the energy and spirit of the Parkinson’s community by bringing together thousands of passionate fundraisers to strap on their helmets and push critical research forward. Initially led by ultra-athlete and former Foundation employee Sam Fox (no relation to Michael J. Fox) in 2015, the first Tour was a three-month climbing, biking and hiking adventure that passed through all 48 of the contiguous United States and into Canada.
 
The first iteration of the Tour united more than 3,000 members of the Parkinson’s community, including patients and their loved ones. In total, 2015’s Tour de Fox raised $2.5 million in support of critical Parkinson’s research, more than doubling the original $1-million goal. The short film below tells the story of those who made the 2015 Tour de Fox so incredible.
 
In summer 2016, inspired by the success and passion of its first year, the Tour again mobilized the Parkinson’s community to take part — but this time, with a new look and feel. In three cycling events across the United States and Canada, the 2016 Tour de Fox Series gathered more than 900 cyclists, galvanized 5,700 donations and raised an incredible $830,000 in support of the Foundation’s high-impact programs. Browse last year’s photos from Great Lakes, Pacific Northwest and Wine Country and see for yourself why you should join the 2017 Tour de Fox Series to help us close the gap on a cure.
