There is an exciting, original and fun cycling charity event called “Lap the Gats for Parkinson’s" to support Parkinson’s disease research. The 3rd annual event will take place on June 19, 2016 on the scenic 21 km loop in the beautiful hills of Gatineau Park in Chelsea, Quebec.
All funds raised in this event go to the Parkinson Research Consortium (PRC). The PRC is based at the University of Ottawa and the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, and consists of scientists and clinicians in the Ottawa community committed to finding a cure to this devastating neurodegenerative condition. The PRC is also dedicated towards making an immediate impact for those people suffering from PD by providing better patient care and improving quality of life for PD sufferers.
