The Sunflower Revolution is a celebratory, three-day event whose mission is to raise money for Parkinsonís disease research and wellness, and to provide education and networking opportunities for patients, caregivers, and physicians confronted by this incurable disease.

Launched in 2004 by the Davis Phinney Foundation and the Cincinnati community, the Sunflower Revolution includes:
Friday: A gala and auction
Saturday: An educational symposium and Parkinsonís expo for patients, caregivers, and physicians
Sunday: Bike rides of 100k, 40k and 10k

The Sunflower Revolution was named by Kathleen Krumme, a Cincinnati cyclist and bicycle shop manager whose father suffered from Parkinsonís disease. The sunflower is not only a ubiquitous sight at the Tour de France, the worldís most famous cycling event, it is also a symbol of hope.

Those who support the Sunflower events are helping fuel research that will lead to a revolution in the care of patients with Parkinsonís disease and, ultimately, a cure.
