Charity Miles – Bike for Parkinsons

A few weeks ago I asked you all to help out any way you could for the Charity Miles Miles for a Cure for Parkinson’s Research. Halfway through the month, Medtronic doubled their pledge of $50,000 to $100,000 to be matched by a ratio of 1 dollar for every mile logged. 
One weekend was set aside that for ever mile logged $3 would be donated. That particular weekend my friend Lydia wanted to go on a training ride for her triathalon training so Debbie, Lydia & myself set out on a 35 mile bike ride to a nearby town & back, each logging our miles for Team Fox & helping to raise over $100 each.
The day was a bit chilly, but the oncoming winter storm managed to stay away long enough for us to get our ride in.
When it was all said and done over 147,000 miles were logged total for the month of October! Thanks to everyone out there who helped raise the $100,000 for Parkinson’s research. Just in time for Daddio’s deep brain stimulator implants on Oct 30th.
