Let's Gear Up for Parkinson's!
Join us for the 5th Annual Redneck Ride for Parkinson's!
Sunday, August 27th 2017
9:30am - 4:00pm
Location: Larimer County
Registration: Free/All donations provide low-cost and/or scholarships for exercise and activity programs
Parkinson's disease hasn't stopped John Jacquinot from living his
life; and for the fifth year he's championing a bike ride to give back to
others in the Colorado Parkinson's community.
John is hosting the 5th Annual Redneck Ride for Parkinson's on Sunday, August 27th. This 24-mile bike ride through the foothills of Larimer County will raise awareness of Parkinson's disease and critical funds for individuals in our community. John is on a very fixed income and he knows others with Parkinson's are in his same position. All funds raised from this campaign will be designated to provide low-cost and/or scholarships for exercise and activity programs provided through the Parkinson Association of the Rockies for Coloradoan's with Parkinson's.
Rocky Mountain Recumbent Bikes is joining us for the ride and will follow participants through the course. They are also offering a bike rental special to event participants: $30.00 to rent a bike for the day.
John has also partnered with others in our community and planned the stops along the way to include lunch and coffee breaks, as well as a gathering to celebrate at the end of the ride. Now he just needs your support. You are welcome to join John for this ride and create some incredible community awareness for Parkinson's disease, make a donation or ask others to contribute.
There is no entry fee to participate in this event and, as mentioned above, all donations contributed are reserved for individuals living in our community who cannot afford minimal costs for exercise programs specific for individuals living with Parkinson’s. (FYI: Exercise is the only treatment proven to slow the progression of Parkinson’s disease.)
This event is limited to the first 100 registered riders. All are welcome to join us for the Event Celebration at 5:00pm at the Big Beaver Brewery.
