Launching the Ride
With only 2 days to go all participants have been running around madly. A fair proportion of today's running around involved the Launch of the 2009 Pedal for Parkinson's Sydney to Melbourne Cycle. The launch was held at Manning Bar and was attended by a range of people including riders, friends, family, Parkinson's sufferers as well as Parkinson's NSW. Attendees had the opportunity to review the schedule the cyclists will be following as well as learn more about Parkinson's and how it effects sufferers as well as those close to them.
A special thank you goes out to Winey Suen who made the launch a reality and shared her touching story and experiences with Parkinson's. Further thanks goes goes out to Miriam and the Parkinson's NSW crew who took the time to come talk the launch attendees about Parkinson's Disease and provide support to the riders. Finally a big thank you to everyone who helped and attended the launch you support and encouragement meant a lot and we look forward to keeping you all updated on out progress over the next 2 weeks.
