The pair, best known for playing Marty McFly (Fox) and Emmet ‘Doc’ Brown (Lloyd), played to raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
‘All in with @mrchristopherlloyd at @michaeljfoxorg Poker Night!’ Fox captioned a nearly identical picture of himself and Lloyd, coordinating in dark duds before the game.
All benefits from the night will go to Fox’s foundation, which he launched in 2000, after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disase, at age 29.
Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder causing tremors and, when the disease has matured, the loss of motor skills.

Fighter: Fox’s foundation has raised nearly $1 billion for Parkinson’s research
In 2018, he opened up to People about drinking heavily and hiding the wine bottles from his wife because he found it too hard to cope with his new illness.
At the time, it caused friction with Tracy Pollan, with whom he shares son Sam, 30, twin daughters Schuyler and Aquinnah, 25, and daughter Esmé, 18.
After cleaning up his act, Fox realized his path was to help others with his foundation and to collect money for Parkinson’s research.
So far, he has raised nearly $1 billion.

‘What’s exciting for me is that this new book is less memoir and more perspective— I consider questions I believe we all have about our lives,’ Fox told People. ‘Who am I? Where am I? Where am I going? I don’t want to give anything away, but I think I’ve figured it out.’
His book will include stories and observations about illness and health, aging, the strength of family and friends.
