What is the Purpose of Together Making Changes?

What is the 2020 Initiative?
The TMC family selected The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today.
The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) exists for one reason: to accelerate the next generation of Parkinson’s disease (PD) treatments. In practice, that means identifying and funding projects most vital to patients; spearheading solutions around seemingly intractable field-wide challenges; coordinating and streamlining the efforts of multiple, often disparate, teams; and doing whatever it takes to drive faster knowledge turns for the benefit of every life touched by PD.
In principle, it means leveraging our core values of urgency, optimism, efficiency, accountability and persistence in problem-solving to work on behalf of the 6 million people worldwide living with Parkinson’s. To learn more you can visit michaeljfox.org.
