Benefiting Parkinson's Disease research at Van Andel Institute

Through the Team Troll Parkinson's Campaign, recreational and competitive cyclists from across Michigan are raising awareness about Parkinson's while raising funds for research at Van Andel Institute (VAI) to fight the disease. The team will proudly wear the Team Troll / VAI cycling uniform at all recreational, club, and race rides throughout 2012, soliciting sponsorships, donations, and pledges for each event. Read about Team Troll in the news.

"We are from under the Mighty Mac, riding and racing for a cause bigger than us." Team Troll was born many years ago when a group of friends went smelt dipping and trout fishing under the Mackinac Bridge. Some locals dubbed the group Trolls because they lived under the bridge. Until 2010, Team Troll was a group of people that had a common interest in hunting, fishing, and the great outdoors. But then the team captain learned that his father had Parkinson's. Now the group rides road and mountain bikes to raise awareness and money to help find a cure for Parkinson's. Learn more about Parkinson's Disease.
