 Pacific Northwest
Virtual | Saturday, August 15, 2020 
 
By joining the 2020 virtual Tour de Fox Series, you’re helping us close the gap on a cure for Parkinson’s disease.  

Riders of all experience levels, abilities and speeds are welcome! 
 
Since 2016, Tour de Fox Pacific Northwest has united hundreds of cyclists and supporters to pedal together and advance The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s mission. As part of our 2020 Tour de Fox Series, the Pacific Northwest ride is one of three cycling events scheduled to take place this year. Due to the evolving situation surrounding coronavirus COVID-19, we have decided to transition all in-person Tour de Fox events to a virtual series.   While the format may be different, you can still make a significant impact: 100 percent of the funds raised go straight to high-impact research programs to accelerate a cure for Parkinson’s disease. 
 
How does a virtual event work?  
Note: We are currently finalizing the logistics around our virtual ride so we can ensure the optimal experience for you and your team. We will send additional details, resources and information in the coming weeks so please stay tuned. For now, we’ve provided an overview of what the ride might look like below. All details are subject to change. 
 
Step 1: Register.  
  • Registration for each rider is $65 (CAD) and all adult riders are encouraged to raise additional funds to have a total of $200 (CAD) by the end of the ride, but it is not required.  
  • Registration for each youth rider (16 and younger) is $45 (CAD), and while fundraising is not required it's highly encouraged. 
(Please note, all registration fees are fully tax-deductible and non-refundable)
Step 2: Cycling Package. Once you register you will receive a cycling package in the mail. Cycling packages include your Tour de Fox t-shirt, bib number and other fun surprises.  
 
Step 3: Personalize your fundraising page. Know that you are cycling for a great cause – finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease - and we need your help to raise money for research. Need tips on how to fundraise?  Check out our Fundraising Tips page.  

When fundraising, each participant can earn a limited edition 2020 Tour de Fox Series cycling jersey by raising $550 (CAD) or more and ride in style! 

 

*We will be recognizing the top five teams and top five individual fundraisers and awarding them special prizes after the ride. 
 
Step 4: Time to ride. Set a time to cycle either during the race period or on your own schedule. You can cycle on a road or indoors and either alone or with a group of friends/family... but remember to be smart, use your judgement and practice appropriate social distancing.  
 
Step 5: Share with us. When you complete your virtual ride, share your distance with us by submitting a screen shot of your cycling date, distance, time completed and a photo of yourself with your Tour de Fox swag to tourdefox@michaeljfox.org. 

We highly encourage you to share your progress on social media. We’ll provide additional resources to help you spread the message to your networks as well as hashtags and friendly competitions to keep you and your supporters engaged before, during, and after the ride.  
 
Step 6: Ride it forward. By participating in our virtual cycling event, 100 percent of proceeds from the registration fee and your fundraising pages will be used to fund high-impact programs to speed better treatments and a cure for Parkinson's disease. No donation is too small, so thank you!
