Parkinson's Programming


Pedaling for Parkinson's

Pedaling for Parkinson's follows a specific exercise regime using a stationary bike or using a tandem bike with a “captain” co-rider who helps maintain the required pedaling speed, intensity, and duration. Studies have shown participants experience improvements in stamina, energy, and cognitive functioning. For more information or to volunteer as a “captain”, contact Marcie Gove via email or 616-355-5127.
