Team Benefits & Resources
Join the Team
To join Team Parkinson’s, simply go to the Join the Team! page, fill out the registration form and create your own personal fundraising page, and begin rallying friends, family and colleagues to support your effort!
Please note: Team members participating in the Seattle-to-Portland Bicycle Classic (STP) must register for the ride through the Cascade Bicycle Club. Registration for Cascade members only opens January 8, 2013. Registration for the general public opens February 5, 2013. If you want to ensure yourself a spot, consider joining Cascade and registering early. STP sold out very early last year and there's a chance it may sell out to Cascade members only. Don't wait!
Upon raising a minimum of $500, each Team member receives a custom-designed cycling jersey or t-shirt and the satisfaction of knowing that your efforts directly benefit Parkinson’s patients and their families throughout the Northwest. In addition, Team members riding the STP receive the care and pampering usually reserved for elite cycling teams, including:
Team-only rest areas and seating
Free bike repair along the route
Discounted bike tune-up prior to the ride
Your effort in raising support and awareness for the Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation will go directly to resources, education and care that will benefit the more than 70,000 living with Parkinson’s in the Northwest.
We’ve prepared a few additional resources to help you make the most of your Team Parkinson’s experience:
The Fundraising Tips sheet provides general guidance and advice on soliciting support for Team Parkinson’s.
The Team Parkinson’s Information Sheet provides general background and can be distributed to prospective supporters or used in preparing your own solicitation letters or emails.
