“We are continuously grateful for every unique partnership that helps speed a cure for the estimated five million people worldwide who live with Parkinson’s disease,” says Debi Brooks, Co-Founder and Executive Vice Chairman, The Michael J. Fox Foundation. “By connecting Back to the Future fans to our community, we do more to speed research toward a cure and move closer to a future without Parkinson’s.”
eBay is no stranger to helping The Michael J. Fox Foundation raise funds for Parkinson’s research. In 2011, eBay and Nike helped raise more than $4.4 million for the Foundation when they auctioned off 1,500 replicas of the film’s iconic, self-tying Nike Mags. The shoes featured a glowing LED panel and an electroluminescent Nike logo in the strap.
