Pancakes for Parkinson’s will be a philanthropic group whose main focus is to host a Pancakes for Parkinson’s event each Spring, starting with Spring 2016. Pancakes for Parkinson’s is a fundraising event partnered with the Michael J. Fox foundation for Parkinson’s Research. This event was founded at UVA in 2004 with the idea that the entire community could, in one morning, make a mark on the international fight against Parkinson’s Disease. Team Fox at the Michael J. Fox Foundation has recently adopted Pancakes as one of their official fundraisers and has worked to spread this initiative to over a dozen schools and universities across the country. We want to bring this event to Duke because it supports an important cause that we feel should have a larger presence on campus.
