On August 31 the Parkinson Community of Cornwall & Area is hosting the Spinning Wheels Tour 2022.

The event will celebrate and acknowledge the incredible achievement of this team of three early onset Parkinson Cyclists and their driver that started in Victoria and will end in Newfoundland. They are stopping to answer questions about Parkinson to bring awareness and encourage donations to their project and local Parkinson support groups.

“The Spinning Wheels group from Ontario is very committed to bringing awareness in a very active way,” said Virginia Lake, Coordinator of Parkinson Awareness Cornwall SDG & Akwesasne, “It is a personal challenge for them, and we wish them the best on their journey.”

A presentation will be made at the regular Rotary Cornwall Sunrise meeting on August 31 at 7:00 am, at the Seaway Valley Theatre company facility. Afterwards, a public event co-hosted by Cornwall Tourism and Parkinson’s Awareness is being held at the Civic Complex at 9:00 am with dignitaries invited.

A group of local cyclists will be biking with the team from Civic Centre to Lancaster and beyond.
