The Bike Box Project has one goal: End Parkinson’s Disease! Since its inception 4 years ago, the 501c3 has raised more than $200,000 toward that end. The money raised helps people locally fighting to stave off the effects of the debilitating disease through several programs at little to no cost to those it serves. Funds raised also help the Michael J Fox Foundation in its research to END PARKINSON’S DISEASE.
Two major fundraising events are coming up and there are many opportunities to be involved and have a great time doing so.
6th Annual Bernin’ to the Beach Bike Ride: October 30, 2021
Riders leave the North Carolina History Center at 529 S Front Street at 8 a.m. and bike to the Atlantic Beach Double Tree. Rest stops at Casa Del Patron in Havelock and Parker Honda in Morehead City are great opportunities to cheer on the riders. A wrap-up party at the Double Tree for the riders and support staff follows. There is also a virtual ride available! https://www.bikeboxproject.org/events-home.
