Richard Chow

On August 26, 2017, the Chowdogs will ride for the third year in a row in the Tour de Fox Wine Country Ride in Santa Rosa, CA. This ride is now becoming a wonderful and fun annual tradition.  Team Chowdogs has now grown to 30 + riders of all ages. In the first two years of existence, we raised a significant sum of money for research, becoming one of the largest fundraisers in the country for Parkinson’s research. For this, along with the many in the Parkinson's community, I am forever thankful and humbled by the extraordinary generosity of so many of you.

Three years ago, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. I have committed myself to ride in the Tour de Fox Wine Country Ride for as long as I am able to help address this disease, which afflicts an estimated five million people worldwide. Parkinson’s disease is the second most common brain disease. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. As you may know, there is no cure for Parkinson’s disease.

Your gift will make a real difference: Tour de Fox proceeds will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s high-impact research programs. 10% of Wine Country proceeds will stay locally in Santa Rosa to benefit the GOALS Foundation, helping special needs adults and children through the sport of soccer.

Please consider making a donation today!

With much love and care,
