KAYSVILLE, Utah - Hundreds of people participated in the Pedal for Parkinson's ride in Davis County on Saturday.
The fundraiser earned more than $10,000 to fight Parkinson's disease.
Meredith Smith organizes the event to honor her mother who has the disease. She says Parkinson's gets less attention than some other causes because only 4 percent of sufferers are under 50 years old.
"It's pretty challenging in your later years when you have Parkinson's to come up with events like this...so it's up to the caregivers, the family and the friends to take on events like this," Smith said.
The money raised goes to the Utah chapter of the American Parkinson's Disease Association.
