Ken’s Ride: A Ride for Hope

May 1, 2022 @ 12:00 am – May 31, 2022 @ 11:45 pm
Virtual Event

Join CurePSP and Jan Appel for a Ride for Hope!

Throughout the month of May, CurePSP and Jan Appel will host a virtual fundraiser to honor Ken Appel – husband, father, and avid bike rider – to raise funds in support of those experiencing neurodegenerative diseases such as PSP, CBD, and MSA. 

Each day during his lunch, Ken Appel would ride along the beautiful Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail in St. Alban’s, Vermont. After Ken passed away in 2018 from PSP, his wife, Jan, decided to organize a local bike ride to honor Ken & support CurePSP. The very first Ken’s Ride happened in May 2019 and was a huge success!   

Wherever you live, you can enjoy Vermont in the Spring and have the opportunity to experience the Rail Trail while making a difference in the lives of patients and families affected by a neurodegenerative disease.This virtual race is 26.3 miles long (the length of the Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail) and can be done on your bike or via your choice of movement at any point throughout the month of May – either all at once or in a cumulative effort! 

ALL ABILITIES WELCOME! Whether you’re a professional biker or a casual yoga fan, we welcome you to participate. You can log any activity from walking to tai chi, and you’ll continue along the race route.  

New this year: The top 3 fundraisers will receive a special prize! Log your miles and then share your achievements with your friends & family. When they donate on your behalf, your total amount raised will go up! Don’t miss out on a chance to win these items!
