A 501c3 Nonprofit


Finding out years ago that my father has Parkinson's Disease, I attached a donation box to my bicycle and began pedaling towards a cure. After only 4 years, Bike Box Project became an official non profit and has raised over $110,000! 

In 2020, we joined forces with a local gym (SWEAT Camp) and began hosting Rock Steady Boxing...a beneficial, fitness class that allows people with PD to FIGHT BACK! 

Our goal is to continue to host fundraisers, events, and

Rock Steady Boxing as well as to pedal to every small town USA, spreading awareness and raising money to support people in the community with PD and to help fund research to eliminate PD.




Donations collected go to assisting people locally with Parkinson’s Disease and to the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research. Over 10 million people worldwide have Parkinson’s Disease.  Thank you for your consideration in contributing to this important cause.


The Bike Box Project is a 501(C)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to raising funds to assist local needs of people with PD and Parkinson’s research. Contributions are deductible in accordance with current tax law.  Our tax ID is 83-1678144.
