Support Darren's Ride

Share my page

I'm taking part in the Growling Beaver Brevet and I'm asking for your support.

The Growling Beaver is a tough endurance ride on changing road conditions, much like Parkinson's: a chronic, progressive disease that presents challenges throughout its progression.

Your support helps our charitable partner Parkinson Canada, support Canadians living with Parkinson's in proactively managing their disease.

The ride is a unique event that is as social as it is athletic. It was designed for cyclists by cyclists to be accessible to everyone: the hardcore road warrior, the devoted gravel grinder, young and old, uber-fit or slowed by Parkinson's. I'm proud to be a part of this community and take on the challenge of this ride. We are inspired by Davis and Connie Phinney, our ethos is to "Live Well Today".

The need for support 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 donation fuels projects focused on improving quality of life today and ultimately finding a cure.
