The first SoCal Ride for Parkinson's was in 2018, started by retired school teacher, Bob Lear. Bob's wife, Karen had been diagnosed with Parkinson's and he wanted a way to increase awareness and support research to find a cure for PD. Just a couple of years later, riders come from all over Southern California and beyond to get some exercise, have some fun and support the Michael J. Fox Foundation. The day includes a walk/run, stationary bike riding, 12, 32, and 62 mile rides, face painting and a bounce house. Volunteers are also needed. Help Bob and his crew bring an end to Parkinson's. The fun is happening at Kaiser Permanente at 6640 Alton Pkwy, Irvine, CA. Find more information or register here.
