The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research
Over the course of the 10-day auction, the Foundation’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/michaeljfoxfoundation) added almost 10,000 new fans. Through the $50-million Brin Wojcicki Challenge, effective through 2012, the proceeds of the auctions will be doubled â€” bringing the total funds generated to $9.4 million. The Challenge was announced earlier this year and is made possible by the leadership of longtime Foundation friends Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, and his wife, Anne Wojcicki, co-founder of personal genetics company 23andMe.
