Hey everyone, on Friday, May 4th from 6:00pm-1:00am at the Comox Legion Hall we are throwing a fundraising party in support of Parkinson’s disease and our “Biking for BAHA” venture... The critically acclaimed band ‘AlpacaWolfpack’ will be making their Comox debut with a barrage music includ...ing rock, pop, 80’s and dance. There will also be cheap drinks, a 50/50 draw, numerous door prizes and “Biking for BAHA” t-shirts on sale throughout the night, so don’t be shy to come out and support such a great cause. This is a 19+ event and tickets will be 8 dollars for early bird, or 10 dollars at the door. However, I highly recommend purchasing a ticket early, as there are limited tickets! All proceeds will be donated directly to the Michael J Fox Foundation and will add to our hope of raising 40 thousand dollars. For tickets, contact me at ross_mackinnon@hotmail.com or text my cell at 250-650-5854. 
A special thanks to Booster Juice, Pita Pit, Safeway, Ski Tak Hut, Rice Toyota, Scorpios and Happy’s sports for donating prizes! 
And a HUGE thank you to our Sponsors for the trip across Canada: David W. Grunder Law Corp, Adamscheck Construction, Subway, First Insurance, and Neuromotion Therapy. Without you this trip isn’t possible! 

Big Thanks to Jordan Cunningham and Mira Laurence from A-Channel and Paul Haysom from Chek TV for their help and outstanding work on these segments that aired April 27th/2012. Your support is greatly appreciated. 
Thanks so much to our first generous sponsors to jump on board, your contribution to the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's research and our cause is admirable! Awesome Stuff! 




Our Uncle Dave is an absolute legend. The man who manufactured the bicycle that Baha was going to ride has fixed up that original bike and sorted out 3 other family bikes for us as well. Here are the pictures of Baha's bike as well as the three other we are going to ride! We are pumped right now! Thanks Uncle Dave for your hard work and support. 
Much thanks to Earle Cooper at the Comox Valley Record, Dave Mcdonald at the Comox Valley Echo and Miranda Lanzillotti at the Michael J. Fox Foundation for helping our cause out. The links to the featured articles are below.
