Join us in helping find a cure for Parkinson’s Disease through supporting the efforts of The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and its grassroots fundraising program Team Fox.
As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of Parkinson’s research, The Fox Foundation has funded more than $800 million to speed a cure for the disease since 2000. In addition, Team Fox participants have raised more than $75 million for Parkinson’s research.
Each year, Lime Rock Park selects an official charity to support throughout the year and we’re pleased to select The Michael J. Fox Foundation and Team Fox as this year’s benefactor.
“This charity is especially near and dear to our hearts, as our good friend and former race car driver Sam Posey has Parkinson’s. Sam has been a champion, not only on the track, but as an advocate for finding a cure for Parkinson’s,” said Lime Rock Park President Skip Barber. “Through our fundraising efforts this year, we hope to have an impact on the lives of all of those who have the disease, including Sam.”

According to officials with the foundation, important advancements are being made that are already changing the lives of so many who have Parkinson’s disease.
