TeamFox:

With the past couple of years, we have started to parter with Team Fox and the Michael J. Fox Foundation to raise money and awareness for Parkinson’s research. The idea was born from a certain inspired brother and has since developed a great pride and compassion in the brotherhood. We eventually expanded our efforts and hosted a Team Fox week where we partnered with various student organizations to grow the benefit to a larger scale.

Recently, Sigma Nu hosted its 5th annual Team Fox Week to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. The week consisted of a benefit night at Cicero’s, Minute to Win It challenges, catering from Pappy’s Smokehouse, and an ultimate frisbee tournament.
