Participate and show your support to Parkinson Québec’s mission!

10 June 2019

The ‘Défi Vélo Parkinson Québec’ is a unique cycling event that will benefit the 25,000 Quebecers living with Parkinson’s disease as well as their caregivers. The cyclists will meet next August 24 at Tennis 13 in Laval to then continue their circuit through the beautiful landscapes of the Lower Laurentians. Four circuits are offered to cyclists of all levels: 40km, 60km, 90km, and 150km. Once you have created your page on the event’s website, you will be able to invite family, friends and colleagues to join you. There are tools available on the platform to help you with fundraising.

Participating as a team will allow you to divide your fundraising efforts, as long as the total amount raised corresponds to $500 per cyclist.

Each cyclist will receive an official 2019 edition of the jersey, a value of $80. If you register individually, don’t worry! We will assign you a team that will cycle at the speed and distance you have registered for.

Do not delay! To guarantee your jersey size, you must have registered before June 28th.

Défi Vélo: Jean Coutu Group and ProDoc as official presenter for a second year of collaboration!

6 May 2019

Parkinson Québec has the honor to announce its partnership with Jean Coutu Group and Pro Doc as official presenter, for a new year of collaboration for the Défi Vélo.

The event will be held for its 9th edition in the beautiful Laurentians on Saturday, August 24th.

A word from our honorary president

 

« It is with pride that I renewed my commitment to co-chair the Défi Vélo. I have been supporting Parkinson Quebec for many years, the cause is very close to my heart because my first mentor and friend has this disease. I saw how the disease changed the daily life of this dynamic man.

It is also a pleasure for me to join Nicolas Carbonneau (co-chair), who has been supporting the Défi Vélo Parkinson Québec since its creation in 2011. Nicolas inspires us with his determination and his desire to have this event recognized throughout Quebec.

I hope to see you all on August 24th for the 9th edition of this key event for the organization and people living with the disease across Quebec.»

Marcel A. Raymond
