Next week I am taking part in Pedaling for Parkinson's - a cycling event that was created to raise awareness about Parkinson's and raise funds for research. I am motivated as I have watched my father and many close family friends live with this awful disease.
Thanks to the support of our sponsors, your donation dollars go directly towards a Pedaling for Parkinson’s Research Grant and the Parkinson Canada National Research Program.
Since 2011, Pedaling for Parkinson's has generated over $1,000,000 in support of the Pedaling for Parkinson's Research Grant. You are supporting the largest annual single site funrdaiser for Parkinson Canada. This year, the fundraising target is $500,000 as we look to influence the course of Parkinson's research in Canada. Reaching this goal will ensure that the legacy of Pedaling for Parkinson's lives on through a committment to fund a new Pilot Project Grant through the Parkinson Canada Research Program until 2027.
As this is the final year for this specific event, I have decided to make a significant personal contribution to help fight this disease. Please join me in this fight - together, we can make a difference!
