About Bike the the Moon:
Bike to the Moon is an annual PKD Foundation of Canada virtual bikeathon. Collectively, we aim to bike the distance to the moon (384,400 km) and raise funds for critical Canadian PKD research within the Hereditary Kidney Disease Program at Toronto General Hospital.
How do I participate? Bike to the Moon is an event that is perfect for both casual and serious cyclists. You can participate any time during June 22-25, 2018 by planning your ride solo, rallying a group of friends together or by organizing or joining a community event. Choose a route in your own community or spend the weekend exploring new territories. You can sign up here!
How many kilometres do I need to ride? Whether you bike 1 km on one day or 400 km over four days, every dollar raised and every kilometre cycled brings a closer to the ultimate finish line: A cure for PKD.
Even if you can't ride this year, you can still set up your own your own personal fundraising page and help us reach our goal of $25,000!
