Fund Raising and Rides

Hi, This is my first blog for this event. My fundraising started on May 1st with a goal of $500. Within a few days I had exceeded that total and amended it to $1000. I did an update to my hit list yesterday, which is my prime fund raising strategy, and quickly exceeded that new goal amended it to $1500, exceeded it, and now have a new goal of $2500.
My supporters have been fantastic whether I've been riding for cancer research, or with this new endeavor, so I want to Thank You All for my continued support!
Living on the "Wet Coast", riding can be a bit dodgy at times, but the weather is improving, so I'm hoping to be more consistent in training for the 500 challenge in August.
Thanks again! Cheers!

I'm going the distance for Pedaling for Parkinson's

Hi,

Over the past 12 years I have focused my fundraising efforts towards events dealing with Cancer. But Paul, a very good friend of mine has been living with Parkinson's for many years now, and I feel that it's time to support him, and the organization helping those in this situation.

I’m keeping the research cadence strong by Pedaling for Parkinson’s. As part of the event, I’ve set a challenging personal distance goal of riding 500 kilometers in the month of August 2022, and am tracking my kilometers.

More than 100,000 Canadians live with Parkinson’s, a number expected to increase substantially in the coming years, with 30 Canadians diagnosed each day. Parkinson’s is a disease that affects not only individuals, but also families, friends and care partners who come together to manage the realities of Parkinson’s.

I’m Pedaling for Parkinson’s to raise money for Parkinson Canada, whose mission is to transform the lives of people living with Parkinson’s. Parkinson Canada funds critical research, provides information and support, increases awareness and advocates for improved health care outcomes for people living with Parkinson's across Canada.

Help me ensure Parkinson Canada is here for Canadians living with Parkinson’s today – while funding research into better treatments and one day, a cure.

Please support my Pedaling for Parkinson’s fundraiser. Together, we can have an immeasurable impact on the research being done, the services being offered, and the people being helped every day.
