Registration is now open for this year's Team Rowland Road Series - October 6th and 7th. Team Rowland hosts a bike ride and golf scramble every year to eradicate Parkinson's.

Team Rowland began in Greenville, SC at the Tour de Fox Blue Ridge benefitting The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research (MJFF). They are a group of over 150+ riders, 50 volunteers, and 1000+ donors with one clear goal: Eradicate Parkinson's disease from the face of the planet. In the six years since, they have ridden thousands of miles and raised over One Million Dollars for MJFF. Team Rowland also gives to the Parkinson Association of Alabama. The goal is to put money into the hands of scientists who are researching a cure for Parkinson's disease and organizations helping to improve the lives of people with Parkinson's disease. 100% of all sponsorship dollars go directly to Parkinson's research programs.


This year, a golf tournament will take place on Friday, October 6th at Oak Mountain State Park (200 Terrace Drive, Pelham, AL 35124) You can register your team to play golf at This 4-player scramble will begin at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start. You can choose your own team or be placed with a team. The cost per player is $125. Corporate and hole sponsorships are available. The event includes breakfast and lunch followed by an awards ceremony. For questions, contact Katie Rowland Ellis at or 1.205.531.9817.


The Team Rowland Road Series event will take place on Saturday, October 7th, also at Oak Mountain State Park. You can choose to ride or walk as an individual or a team. You can also choose to create your own team or join a team. To register, go to the Team Rowland Page and click on the 2023 Ride Registration link:

You can pick your challenge by choosing to ride or walk. For riders, choose from rides of 5, 10, 15 or 30 miles. The ride includes flat straightaways and rolling hills. There's a course to accommodate riders of all ages and skill levels. As the miles increase, so does the degree of incline, so choose wisely.

If a long bide ride isn't your speed, there is still a way for everyone to be part of the event and part of the fun. Choose a 1-mile Stroll and Roll instead.


Remember, this is a fundraising event! Your registration fees offset the cost of the event, but our hope is that all of our participants will leverage their networks and help us raise money to eradicate Parkinson's disease! The more you raise, the more Rider Swag and Prizes you quality for. $500 gets you a Team Rowland Hat and $1,000 gets you a Custom Team Rowland Rider's Jersey. Special recognition for the top 10 fundraisers will earn a custom Team Rowland Yellow Jersey - so move over Tour de France!


It takes a lot of dedicated volunteers to make this event a reality. We need volunteers of all ages and abilities. The volunteers are the heartbeat of the event. You can serve at either the road series or golf tournament, or both. To volunteer, go to:


Bring the whole gang to show support for our efforts. The Saturday morning rides will be followed by an on-site celebration with an update from the Michael J. Fox Foundation, live music, food, fellowship and FUN!

My spouse was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. His symptoms included excruciating calf pain, muscular aches, tremors, slurred speech, frequent falls, loss of balance, and trouble standing up from a seated posture. After six months on Senemet, Siferol was given to him in place of the Senemet. It was also at this period that he was diagnosed with dementia. He began seeing hallucinations and became detached from reality. With the doctor's approval, we stopped giving him Siferol and chose to try the Ability Health Center PD-5 protocol, which we had previously investigated. After three months of therapy, he has made significant progress. The illness has been completely contained. There are no symptoms of persistent twitching, weakness, tremors, hallucinations, or muscle soreness.…
