On February 8th, I'll be riding to raise funds and awareness with the Parkinson's Foundation to help improve care for those living with Parkinson's, and to advance research toward a cure!
I plan on crushing this 90 minute ride in honor of my Father In Law - Herb, who lost his decade+ long fight last year, in addition to my Uncle Harold, and close friends loved ones' who have, and continue to fight, while the search for a cure continues!
Parkinson's is the 2nd-most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer’s, with 10 million+ people afflicted worldwide and a new diagnosis every 9 minutes!
My fundraising efforts will support:
· Ensuring better care for everyone living with Parkinson’s and funding research toward a cure!
· Educating and empowering the Parkinson’s community
Along with raising awareness and money for research, Parkinson’s Revolution also hopes to highlight the effectiveness of regular exercise for those who suffer from the disease.
Though there’s no cure for Parkinson’s, cycling in particular has been shown to significantly alleviate symptoms - so for that reason I ride!
Every dollar counts, so thank you in advance for your support! If you'd like to mail in a donation - download this form!
With great appreciation!
