This is the final year of the P4P ride and I am committed to help P4P reach it's goal of $500,000 to continue the support of research to find the cause and cure. The disease has touched many close to me and my family and the Parkinson's journey is not a pleasant one - we need to do all we can to improve the life of those living with PD today and irradicate the disease in the future.
My Father-in-Law, Dr. Bob Alexander was a vibrant, active and caring father, grandpa, husband, doctor and friend. PD took away his physical quality of life - he was aware of our efforts through this ride to advance research into PD and was very pleased that we were focussed on helping future PD patients have a better PD journey than he endured. Our family's memory of this great man and his PD journey continue to motivate our effort.
Team Paff has set a high goal for the last year of this ride and are hopeful that you will help us achive and exceed our goal. I and Clairvest have started the effort with a gift sufficient to sponsor one researcher with the grant named in Bob's honour and we hope, with your help, to raise sufficient to support another researcher.
It is with deep gratitude that I thankyou for your support.
