Growling Beaver Brevet
Saturday, September 28th, 2019 Collingwood Ontario
BIG BOLD BRAIN science does not happen by itself. It requires the support of the community. The Growling Beaver Brevet (GBB) was initiated by a group of cycling buddies in order to support one of their members who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. The GBB is a social non competitive ride that celebrates the joy of cycling. 250 cyclists will ride 40, 60, 100 or 200 km on mixed tarmac and gravel routes through the scenic Beaver Valley, in Ontario, during the height of the fall colours. The GBB will take place on September 28, 2019, and fundraising proceeds will go to support research and programming. Canadian donations will go to the Brain Canada Foundation and US donations to the Davis Phinney Foundation. Almost a third of Brain Canada’s funding supports research on neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s. We look forward to partnering with the GBB in our shared goal of advancing our understanding of diseases like Parkinson’s and how to translate basic research into helping people to live well today.
