Laurine Fillo - Team Pedal for Parkinson's YYC/YVR

On August 18th, Team Pedal for Parkinson's YYC/YVR, will once again be spinning our wheels for a multi-distance bike ride through the beautiful Fraser Valley in Port Coquitlam, B.C. Our team this year, consists of myself, Dave, Kyle & girlfriend Rachel, Logan, Mark, my brother Doug & my niece Hayley. We will be joining other Team Fox supporters to raise funds for The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. It is an exciting time for Parkinson's Research, with developments in disease modifying drugs and other therapies which aim to slow or halt the progression of the disease.

The Tour de Fox event will be our main fundraising effort, and we hope you will provide support by way of a donation.

I having been living with Parkinson’s for 16 years…and as time rolls along, so does progression of this neuro-degenerative condition. When my medications aren’t working as they should or when I am tired, I experience slowness of motion, balance issues, stiffness in my muscles and often feel anxious. In contrast, when I'm well rested and my meds have kicked in…I feel and move with such freedom and a sense of calm. In addition to medication, other tools in my PD toolkit ,which are equally as important, include: boxing, yoga, Zumba, weight training, nutrition, massage, acupuncture, meditation and a positive attitude.

While the road to a cure for Parkinson’s seems infinitely long and full of sharp curves and turns…I will never give up hope!

Your gift will make a real difference: 100 percent of Tour de Fox Pacific Northwest ride proceeds will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s high-impact research programs.

Thank you for the love and support that you continue to show to me and my family. You hold a special place in our hearts….thanks again!

Love, Laurine
