WOD to Benefit Parkinson's Research

Saturday 9:30am Free Class - Primal Parkinson's Ride

An estimated five million people worldwide live with Parkinson's today. It is the second most common neurological disorder. In the United States, approximately 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure.

Everyone can help end Parkinson’s disease. The 12th annual New England Parkinson's Ride on Saturday, September 7, 2019 where over 1,000 cyclists will gather to help pedal closer to a cure.

We will be participating in our own Parkinson's Ride at the gym from 8am to noon. We will do a Team WOD with a max effort calorie bike and/or row. All athletes are welcome to participate, and donations are greatly appreciated. All proceeds will be donated to the The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s 2019 agenda is focused on building improved knowledge about the lived experience of Parkinson's disease, finding an objective test for Parkinson’s, engaging patients in research and supporting the development of new treatments and a cure. https://www.michaeljfox.org/2019-agenda
