Participants who loved Défi Vélo Parkinson Québec

I achieved my goal: complete the 90 km course while also encouraging new participants to do the same for Parkinson’s disease. Thank you to all of those who supported me throughout this challenge. This cause is very touching to me! Seeing such motivated cyclists gather and pedal together for the same goal moved me a lot. Every push offers support to people like me who are living with Parkinson's disease and our families.
