This summer I am Pedaling for Parkinson's (in Parry Sound). This cycling event was created to raise awareness about Parkinson's and raise funds for research.
Thanks to the support of our sponsors, your donation dollars go directly towards a Pedaling for Parkinson’s Research Grant and the Parkinson Society Canada National Research Program.
Parkinson's is a neurodegenerative disease. Movement is normally controlled by dopamine, a chemical that carries signals between the nerves in the brain. When cells that normally produce dopamine die, the symptoms of Parkinson's appear. Currently, there is no cure.
With your support we can help the Parkinson Society realize their vision of a better life and a brighter future for Canadian's living with Parkinson's today; a world without Parkinson's tomorrow.
Personally: This year I hope to ride 40km on Friday, 85km on Saturday, and another 40km on Sunday. I would really appreciate your support of me during these rides!!! By the conclusion of this fundraising campaign, cumulatively over 10 years, the event will have raised approximately 1.5 million dollars. Directly to research! This is an awesome event, family oriented, with some of the best volunteers and sponsors around. Your donations are greatly appreciated by all.
