Pedal Support for Parkinson’s

This Father’s Day Weekend we invite you (along with your favorite ride-along crew) to join us on the Banks-Vernonia Trail! With several distance options to choose from, this is a ride for the novice as well as experienced cyclists. A hosted lunch (included with your $35 registration fee) will be served to riders between 11:30am and 1:00pm at the Anderson Park Pavillion in Vernonia, OR.

(For those who hope to just join us for lunch and to cheer on riders… there is a lunch only registration option!)

Start in Vernonia, or make the lunch stop your turn around point, we look forward to seeing you on the trail. PeDal Support encourages people with Parkinson’s to ride for the fun of it and experience the benefits of cycling with this disease.

VANCOUVER: Preparing for the Unexpected

Illness, family obligations, and medical needs can all come unexpectedly for any of us, and for those of us in crucial roles as caregivers (for ourselves or others), it is important to plan ahead.

In this event graciously hosted by Boomerang Therapy Works, we will assist participants as they identify steps to take to get prepared, including rallying support and identifying roles ahead of time for family and friends, finding care resources, and gathering and organizing crucial information. By taking steps to prepare and communicate with your larger network, we hope to lessen the stress of “what will happen if I can’t be there?” and “What will happen if I need help?”

This event will be in person and a packet of information will be provided for registered participants at the event.
