Thanks for visiting our team page. 


In June of 2017 The PEI Pedalling Parkies, Dan Steele & Natasha McCarthy will be riding the Confederation trail across PEI to raise awareness about & funds for Parkinson's Disease. The ride will start in O'Leary and end in Elmira, 5 days and 273 KM.

We are also hoping to grow a team of bikers for this event. You can join us for a leg of the trip, a full day or the entire trip, that's up to you, but the more the merrier!

As a team, we are committed to supporting Parkinson Canada. I’d like to tell you why, and what committing to join us or visiting our personal pages and making a donation will do.

By 2031, the number of people living with Parkinson’s in Canada will more than double. We are planning our event to fund the increasing need for support services, education, advocacy and research. This is why I’m asking for your support today. 

Help me ensure Parkinson Canada is there for Canadians living with Parkinson’s today – while funding research into better treatments and one day, a cure. 

Every dollar raised and every new team member means new hope. Thank you!
