The purpose of the event is to raise awareness about Parkinson’s disease and raise funds for research. Organizers work closely with Parkinson Canada to help ensure a successful event and they have created a specific Pedaling for Parkinson’s Research Grant.

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.
