My Activity Tracking
My target 300 kms
Smashing Goals!!Thanks to the support of some amazing (and extremely generous) friends and family I have once again exceeded my goal!! There really are no words to express what this means to me and how touched I am, I did not expect such a phenomenal response. It once again reminds me how fortunate I am to be surrounded by so many people who care about me. It also reflects their support for all the other people who are living with PD. As always I dedicate this ride to Sylvia, with love and the utmost respect.
I'm going the distance for Pedaling for Parkinson's
This summer 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. Your donations support the Pedaling for Parkinson’s Research Grant and the Parkinson Canada Research Program.
As part of the event, I’ve set a challenging personal distance goal and am tracking my miles.
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; more than one person every hour. By 2031, the number of people living with Parkinson’s in Canada will more than double. Your support fuels the increasing need for research to improve quality of life and ultimately find a cure.
With your support we can help Parkinson Canada realize their vision of a better life today for Canadians living with Parkinson's; a world without Parkinson's tomorrow.
