It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a month since that spectacular day when we held our 14th Annual Ride. Though this year had more than it’s share of challenges, our Ride Family stayed strong yet again. Nearly 800 of you showed up to ride with us in Maine, while another 300 continued our new tradition of Cycling In Sync. Together we rode toward a cure!
Our incredibly dedicated volunteers also showed up and worked harder than ever. There were fewer of them, due to last minute cancellations, and more work to be done to keep everyone safe. But they checked you in and took care of you out on the road. They kept you nourished, cared for your wounds, and took amazing pictures.
If there was a job to do, it almost certainly was done by a volunteer!
Of course none of this would have been possible without our sponsors. It is the sponsors who sustain the Ride year after year so that we can continue to donate 100% of funds raised by cyclists directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Please join us in a resounding THANK YOU to every one of them!
Because of our joint efforts, the 2021 New England Parkinson’s Ride has already raised an astonishing $1,291,691, with fundraising continuing right through the end of the year!
With your help we will continue to push closer every day to our $1.5 million goal.
