Pedaling 4 Parkinson’s Ride
For the third year in a row 3 4 Fighting Parkinson’s is hosting a one-day, 55-mile bike race benefiting Parkinson’s disease research. The ride starts and ends at Glendale’s Creekside Park and all proceeds raised from those participating in the Pedaling 4 Parkinson’s ride will be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
Comprised of “3” Denver area women, Laura Fiske, Lauren Williams and Jackie Williams, who are united “4” the “Fight” to cure Parkinson’s disease.
“We are passionate about this effort and our journey has taught us much about Parkinson’s disease and the many people and organizations that are trying to find a cure,” said Fiske. “We started 3 4 Fighting Parkinson’s in large part because we have loved ones with the disease. While the three of us cannot find a cure for Parkinson’s, that doesn’t mean we have to just sit here and do nothing. We chose to fight and this is how we’re doing it.”
The idea for the Pedaling 4 Parkinson’s ride came about because all three women enjoy biking and it has recently been discovered that Parkinson’s patients can benefit greatly from bicycling therapy. In short – it was a natural fit.
“Since we began this project, we’ve learned of many of our friends and family whose lives have been touched by Parkinson’s disease,” Fiske explained. “Whether or not you have experienced the challenges of the disease, we hope you’ll join us in fighting for a cure!”
Taking place on Saturday, June 8 the ride will take participants in and around Denver, rain or shine. The deadline to register online is June 5 and walk-up registration will be available on the day of the ride. All participants will receive a free t-shirt, complimentary lunch and other prizes. The event will also feature live music and a beer garden.
“Our mission is to raise awareness of the long-reaching effects of Parkinson’s, including its impact on the elderly, our loved ones and the population as a whole,” Fiske added. “Please join us in raising funds so that these efforts may continue.”
