Help us raise money

For participating in Growling Beaver 2020

Our story…

We are a group of friends who are devoted to creating a unique and memorable event every year. We want to help people living with Parkinson’s to live well today and get outside! Thank you for being part of our community.


Our team is taking part in the Growling Beaver Brevet this year, and we invite you to join us or support our efforts.

This ride is a unique event that is as social as it is athletic. It was designed for cyclists by cyclists to be accessible to everyone: the hard core road warrior, the devoted gravel grinder, young and old, uber-fit or slowed by Parkinson’s. I'm proud to be a part of this community and to take on the challenge of this ride. We are inspired by Davis and Connie Carpenter Phinney, our ethos is to “Live Well Today”.

The ride's charitable partner, Parkinson Canada believes in this too. Your donation supports a vision of a better life today for Canadians living with Parkinson’s; a world without Parkinson’s tomorrow. 

The need for support is only increasing. More than 25 Canadians are diagnosed with Parkinson's every day; more than one person every hour. By 2031, the number of people living with Parkinson’s in Canada will more than double. Your donation fuels projects focused on improving quality of life today and ultimately find a cure.
