My Activity Tracking
My target 1000 kms
I'm going the distance for Pedaling for Parkinson's
I typically spend my summer months preparing to slave behind the grill at Pedaling for Parkinson's. This year, I'm trading in my spatula for a trainer and riding 1,000+ kms as part of a country wide goal of 100,000 kms - one for each Canadian with Parkinson's.
Pony up a donation and I might still make you a burger.
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.
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.
