The progression of Parkinson's affects movement as in fatigue, slowness, coordination and balance. One of the best ways to counteract the effects of Parkinson's is exercise. I will ride the Seattle to Portland bike ride for the third time. I am upping my goal and planning to ride 150 miles the first day and then slide on in the next day to complete the 200 miles. I am riding for American Parkinson's Disease Association this year to raise $500. It is a worthy cause that supports research to find a cure as well as easing the burden for those with PD throughout the world. Please contribute what you can. Thank you.
