For the third year in a row I will be riding my Harley Davidson motorcycle, without using my hands to navigate, in order to raise funds for Parkinson's research. This year, I will attempt to finish what I set out to do last year and ride from the south side of the Mackinac Bridge in Michigan, to Covington, Kentucky. This ride will be a total of 525 miles, non stop, as well as no handed, and will again set a new world record.
I do this ride in remembrance of my father, Robert E.Comar, who passed in 2008 because of complications caused by Parkinson's disease. His strength of character and perseverance in his struggle with this disease gives me my personal drive and determination to do what ever I can to help find a cure for others. I feel it is the only thing that will help offset the helplessness I felt as I watched him progressively diminish over the years until he was unable to do the simplest things in life that most of us take for granted.
I have planned several fund raising events around this ride and with the help of family, friends, and all the supporters, I believe we can achieve the goal of $25,000 to aid in finding a cure for Parkinson's disease. Please join me in my efforts to make sure no one ever has to go through what my father and many others have, and are enduring.
Five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson's disease, a chronic, degenerative, neurological disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson's disease.
