THE GROWLING BEAVER
COLLINGWOOD | BEAVER VALLEY
The Growling Beaver Brevet is an amazing event to celebrate cycling and to help people with Parkinson's to live well today. All fundraising proceeds will go to support the joint work of the Davis Phinney Foundation and ParkinGo Wellness Society.
The Growling Beaver Brevet is a social (non-race) ride to celebrate cycling with 150 cyclists riding 40, 100 or 200 km routes through the scenic Beaver Valley at what should be the height of the fall colours. The day will feature Beaver Valley and Georgian Bay communities and merchants that have supported cyclists through the summer season. The routes have been conceived with a mix of tarmac and scenic country gravel roads. Every rider will carry a “passport” that will be authenticated at checkpoints.
Note: The event will occur on open roads ways, thus all participants must follow the Highway Traffic Act.

Eleven years ago, Olympic medalist, Tour de France stage winner and sports broadcaster Davis Phinney set out to share what he’d discovered since learning he had Parkinson’s: that although he could not change the diagnosis, there was much he could do to change how he lived with the disease. The same determination, optimism and conviction that brought him success as a professional athlete applied naturally to his approach to Parkinson’s: set goals and strive for the best possible results. From these humble beginnings, the Davis Phinney Foundation was born, with a mission to help people with Parkinson's to live well today.
As the Foundation crosses the threshold into a second decade, its unique role in the Parkinson’s community remains to inspire, inform, and equip people with the tools to live fully and to thrive. In 2014 alone, the Davis Phinney Foundation positively impacted nearly 150,000 people in the US, Canada and beyond. But with 6.3 million people living worldwide with Parkinson’s, the Foundation is resolved to reach even more people with Parkinson’s with tools and resources that will empower them to live well today.
A new partnership between the Davis Phinney Foundation and the ParkinGo Wellness Society, a registered Canadian charity, will bring great tools and resources to Canadians living with Parkinson’s disease. Your support through this partnership will allow more people in Canada to have access to tools and resources that empower them to live well today and everyday.
