Ottawa’s Yvon Carriere is training for a 50mile run. If that is not impressive enough, Yvon is also looking for your help to raise money to help end Parkinson’s disease.
Click here to listen to Yvon talk about the run and why the fight to end Parkinson’s is so important to him:
Luckily YOU (and I ) do not have to run approximately 80KMs. That part is up to Yvon at the Rock the Ridge 50 Mile Challenge. However, you can join Yvon and some great people at The Mayfair on Saturday April 14th for a special screening of Back to the Future starring Michael J. Fox. This movie never (ever ever) gets old!
The money raised through movie admission and donations will go to Yvon’s campaign to raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation which is doing incredible work to find a cure for Parkinson’s.
You can also donate directly to Yvon though the Michael J Fox foundation here
