Club members ride to fight Parkinson's Disease

On Sept. 11th three Belfast Bicycle Club members, Greg and Heide Purinton-Brown and Eric Sanders, will be riding in this year's New England Parkinson's Ride as part of team Tyler Brown. 

Greg Purinton-Brown, who lost his father Tyler to PD last summer formed team Tyler Brown to honor his father and raise money to support the Michael J. Fox Foundation for PD research.

Eric will be riding to honor Margaret Miller, his mother-in-law who passed away from PD last fall.

Also joining the team are Greg's aunt Eliza and uncle Hammond (Tyler's brother) and their son Sam, Greg's older brother Justin, and family friends Seth Haskell, Matt Fowler and John-David Hutchinson-Maxwell.
