This March, we are biking from Florida to California not only to visit family out west and to see new places along the way, but also to raise awareness for Parkinson's Disease and support the Micheal J. Fox foundation. Countless adventures, including backpacking the 800 mile Arizona Trail, paddle boarding for 4 weeks on the Connecticut River, and living out of our pickup truck and tent all over the country have certainly prepared us for the trip. Greg has extensive bike touring experience, and will be the "Captain" on our tandem bike, while Vida sits in back as the "Stoker".
We are riding to raise awareness for Parkinson's Disease, a neurodegenerative disease that affects mobility. There is little known about what causes PD, and no known cure. This fundraiser is very close to our hearts because Vida's Dad was diagnosed with PD five years ago. All proceeds go directly to the Micheal J. Fox foundation, the organization that is searching for a cure and helpful therapies for people with PD. PD can leave patients and their families feeling powerless, and organizations like MJFF give us all hope!
We are very grateful for everyone that donates, and follows along our ride across America!
Vida and Greg
