Parkinson2Beat is a team of enthousiastic people (50% with Parkinsons) and has four goals:

  1. raise the awareness of the impact of Parkinson’s at the environment (family, friends, employment and project team);
  2. raise the awareness of the fact that there is (almost) no basic research wrt Parkinson’s;
  3. Development of and raising awareness of possible direction of solutions how to finance basic research wrt Parkinson;
  4. Raising funds for basic research wrt Parkinson’s.

The team cooperates with the Parkinson Vereniging. Initiative came from Ruud Overes (57).

Ruud is diagnosed for Parkinson’s since 1 year. Being an enthusiastic bicycle rider he had always a plan of making a nice big bicycle tour after his retirement. Parkinson’s seems to make this impossible. He decided: It is now or never and the ‘Trip around Europe’ was born. At the 28th of June 2018 he left his little farm house for a trip of 10.000 km in 80 days. At the end it took a bit longer.

Via this, TwitterFacebook, Instagram and YouTube we will inform you about his trip.

Omroep Brabant made this beautiful documentary of his departure from Eersel.
