I raisied money for the National Parkinson Foundation through donations on a per mile basis as I ride my BMW 1150 GS Adventure from Miami , Fl to the tip of South America and back. Over 20,000 miles. I Am going to travel West through the Gulf States to Mexico , Central and South America , over pavement and dirt, arriving eventually at Ushuaia , Argentina . The Southernmost town of the world. At which point I ’ ll turn Northward and head home, back to South Florida . Raising money and awareness every mile along the way.
I have a close family member who has recently been diagnosed with early onset Parkinson Disease. They have spent their entire adult life trying to make this planet a cleaner more environmentally aware place for all of us to live.
Parkinson Disease is a degenerative neurological disease of the brain. I want to do something that will draw peoples attention, raise awareness, and collect money that can be delegated to researching the causes and the possible cure for this no non-curable disease.
Hope. I strongly believe that cures for this disease, and others closely related, are very near.
With your help and my effort we can all combine our resources and talents to help make a huge difference in finding a cure.
100% of all donations go directly to the National Parkinson Foundation. All trip expenses will be paid for by myself, Brennan Dates.
