Research the Cure™
At Arbor Assays we believe we should be proactive in giving back to our community. We make a charitable donation based upon every kit product you buy from us. We have named this program “Research the Cure™” and for each year, the proceeds will go directly to a charity supporting medical research. For 2018 we have chosen The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today.
Previously Recognized Charities:
- The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) (2017)
- National Organization for Rare Disorders (2016)
- Brain Research Foundation (2015)
- American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA) (2014)
- Joslin Diabetes Center (2013)
- Charcot Foundation (2012)
- Cystic Fibrosis Trust (2011)
- Collaborative Research Centers of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (2010)
Our level of contribution will be a fixed dollar amount for every 1 or 2 plate kit we sell regardless of list price. We will also contribute 4 times that dollar amount for every 5 or 10 plate kit we sell. When we give you a discount off the price of the kit that dollar contribution will remain the same. We will also not change the dollar contribution if we give you a discount off on a bulk purchase or standing order. It’s just our way of returning something to the world community.
This will be in addition to, and does not negatively effect, our charity efforts like our record contributions to the MS Walks in Michigan.

Annual Multiple Sclerosis Walk – COME JOIN THE MOVEMENT!
June 23, 2018 at Hudson Mills Metropark, Dexter Michigan
We’ve formed an Arbor Assays team for Walk MS every year since our start (2007), and we’ve walked many years before because the National Multiple Sclerosis Society funds more MS research than any other private organization. In addition to studies which seek to identify the cause and course of the disease, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society also provides much needed education, programs, and services to everyone affected by MS – the diagnosed, their friends and family, and the healthcare professionals who work with them.
Come and join, or donate.
