My Activity Tracking
My target 1000 kms
I'm going the distance for P4PinPEC
This summer, I will be Pedalling for Parkinson's in Prince Edward County.
Although this year's cycling event will be a unique, virtual experience, Pedalling for Parkinson's remains committed to raising awareness about Parkinson's and raising funds for research. Personal donations will continue to support the Pedaling for Parkinson’s Research Grant and the Parkinson Canada Research Program.
As part of a special cycling community that is "going the distance" this summer, I’ve set a personal distance goal and I am tracking my kilometres. My goal is to ride 1000 kms and raise $1000 by August 29th. On August 29th, I hope to celebrate a victory with my team, "P4PinPEC", completing a modified, socially-distant-but-remarkably-connected Pedalling for Parkinson's ride in Milford, Ontario.
Parkinson's is a neurodegenerative disease. Movement is normally controlled by dopamine, a chemical that carries signals between the nerves in the brain. When cells that normally produce dopamine die, the symptoms of Parkinson's appear. Currently, there is no cure. The need is only increasing. More than 25 Canadians are diagnosed with Parkinson's every day; that is more than one person every hour. By 2031, the number of people living with Parkinson’s in Canada will more than double. Your support will fuel the research needed to improve quality of life and ultimately find a cure.
With your support, we can help Parkinson Canada realize the vision of a better life today and a world without Parkinson's tomorrow.
