PEDAL THROUGH QUEBEC FOR THE CAUSE!
Flagship event of Parkinson Québec, the ”Défi Vélo” is a rendezvous for hundreds of people combining seasoned cyclists and people who have at heart the cause. The Défi Vélo aims to support the mission of Parkinson Québec and its partners, including Parkinson Montréal-Laval, to better support people living with the disease and their caregivers.
This 12th edition, supported by the honorary presidency of Mr. Alain Champagne, president of Jean Coutu and Brunet, invites cyclists to get involved with courage and pleasure, with the Parkinson’s community, in their own way, to collect donations.
New this year: There is a 50$ registration fee. As soon as you register, you will automatically be given a jersey of the 2022 Défi Vélo edition !
Thanks for your involvement, Parkinson Québec can improve and extend its services and thus be closer to the community.
