Last year during our inaugural Miles for a Cure, we challenged you walk, run or bike using the Charity Miles app to raise dollars for Parkinsonís research over the course of 30 days. And the results were incredible.
Of course, every time you use the Charity Miles app to log miles you walk, run or bike, youíre racking up funds for critical Parkinsonís research. But beginning this Friday, October 3, our partner sponsor Medtronic DBS Therapy wants to take those miles even further, matching an additional $1 per mile up to $50,000.
And this time around, we're challenging you to reach this goal as fast as possible. Because there's no time to waste ó the sooner we can raise $50K for Parkinson's research, the closer we'll be to new treatments and a cure for those living with the disease today.
So what are you waiting for? Here's how to participate:
