Parkinson's - SWYM & Friends

We’ll ride as a team and we’ll change lives as a team. 

A number of swimming and cycling buddies are making it into a team effort and joining Rob on THE RIDE. Last year, when participating in Lap-the Gats, the "SWYM & Friends" team raised $3,857 for Parkinson's research by cycling laps of Gatineau Park. Proceeds from SWYM & Friends support in THE RIDE will also be directed towards Parkinson's Disease research at The Ottawa Hospital. 

Make your gift on behalf of the team (click on the DONATE button), or click on one of the names of a team member and support through that member's ride. It all adds up as a team effort.

Join SWYM & Friends, and get on your bike too. Help Rob in this worthy cause. There are 3 options:

- 50 km or

- 109 km or

- the virtual ride (using an app to log cumulative rides wherever you live).


SWYM and Friends


Giving back to our community and supporting research at The Ottawa Hospital is what has brought us together. We want to fund clinical trials, research projects and innovative ideas. We are changing lives for patients in Ottawa, Canada, and around the world.

There are two ways you can help:

  • DO support our team by making a donation today. 
  • DO register to be a part of our team today by cycling or volunteering. 

Then on Sept. 8, 2019 our team will DO THE RIDE!
