CyclingI'm having some issuesWith motivating myselfTo get on my bike.I'm not sure where this is coming from, but I am still going to try to finish the 200 km by the end of Oct. Thanks to all that have given hard earned money so far! At least you are motivated and haven't missed a beat!
I'm going the distance again 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.
