Tracy Pollan and Michael J. Fox had a fun night out while giving to a worthy cause.

The devoted pair attended The Michael J. Fox and Associates Foundation’s A Countrywide Something Happen on the Road to Cure Parkinson’s disease event on Tuesday to mark the beginning of Parkinson’s Awareness Month.

Held at Belmont University in Nashville, the red carpet event featured a private cocktail hour and a concert with country music stars including Jason Isbell, Little Big Town, and Sheryl Crow.

Fox, 62, received a Parkinson’s disease diagnosis in 1991, and in 1998 he disclosed the news to the public. In the early months of 2000, he established his foundation to support Parkinson’s disease research.

According to its website, the organization has raised more than $1.75 billion since its founding.

In November of 2023, the renowned actor clarified that the purpose of the organization was to provide a voice to those who lacked one on a segment on CBS Mornings.

Fox remarked, “I felt like I could go out for those individuals & raise real hell because they were without cash or a voice.” It does not provide relief. However, it shines a bright light on our priorities along with where i need to go in order to be certain that we are headed in the correct direction. For this reason, we are extremely proud.

He acknowledged that one of his greatest supporters is Pollan, with whom he has been married since 1988.

It goes without saying that I adore Tracy; she is a remarkable person who has experienced a lot. I understand that she is a person and that her life is distinct from mine because I have Parkinson’s disease and am not Marty McFly or Alex Keaton. I believe that’s the reason it’s gone well, Fox remarked.

During the National Board of Assessment Gala in January, Fox’s Still: A Michael J. Fox’s Movie took home the Best Documentary award. In his remarks of acceptance, he referred to Parkinson’s illness as a “gift.”
