The purpose of the event is to raise awareness about Parkinson’s disease and raise funds for research. We have been working closely with Parkinson Canada to help ensure a successful event and they have created a specific Pedaling for Parkinson’s Research Grant.
There are some modest ‘rewards’ for achieving different fund raising levels:
- $1000 First Level Gear Rewards
- $1500 Second Level Gear Rewards
- $2000 Third Level Rewards
- $3000+ Hammerfest Rewards
How can people donate?
Please direct people to your own personal webpage where they can make a secure online donation. Alternatively, they can make a donation by searching for a rider.
Cheques/Cash there are two ways to process them:
Option 1 Bring the cash/cheques with you to the event. There is an offline form that you can download.
Option 2 within your personal webpage, you can manage offline donations. Any questions, just ask.
Option 3 - mail cheques, complete with donor addresses and rider information, to: Attn: Jon Collins, Parkinson Canada, 316-4211 Yonge St., Toronto, ON, M2P 2A9.Fundraising Tips
On the web, there are many fundraising tips (google away), but the bottom line is to just ask. Please start your donation campaign (e.g., updating your personal donation webpage). If you would like a ‘sample’ donation request, let us know and we can send you one. It helps to keep it personal and connect with the people that you are asking.
