In the summer of 2015, ultra-athlete and Michael J. Fox Foundation employee Sam Fox (no relation to Michael J. Fox) embarked on Tour de Fox, an extreme cross-country journey in support of Parkinson’s research. The Tour covered terrain from Maine to Vancouver — passing through all 48 of the contiguous United States and climbing each of their highest peaks, while biking 8,000 miles. Along the way, Sam was joined by more than 2,000 members of the Parkinson’s community, including patients and their loved ones inspired by Sam’s monumental effort and united in the common goal of raising funds and awareness for research to speed a cure.
