As Joe Motz prepares for his 65th birthday, he’s also gearing up for a 6,500-mile journey to raise awareness and support for patients with Parkinson’s disease. “Rolling out of my barn in Anderson Township, heading 6,500 miles for my 65th,” Motz said. His bicycle ride kicks off at 10 a.m. next Friday at Fountain Square. Motz said his goal is to raise $650,000 for the creation of treatment programs in partnership with the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute and UC Center for Integrative Health and Wellness.
