Midwest Meander for HD is a 1500 mile circuitous bicycle ride from Kearney, Nebraska to St. Louis, Missouri with a 3 day stop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at the 21st Annual HDSA Convention (June 9-11, 2006) and ending with 5 days on Route 66 through Illinois. The purpose of the ride is to heighten public awareness of Huntington's Disease and to raise funds for family services and research towards a cure.

Hot off the Press
The Grand Junction Free Press published two articles on the eve of Marie and Charlotte's departure. The first article, Hitting the road for Huntington’s, introduces you to the ride and riders and gives the background to the many Bike For the Cure rides. The second article, Living with Huntington’s Disease, introduces Genevieve, a PHD (Person with Hundington's Disease), who lives here in Grand Junction and her mother and caretaker, Pauline. The articles are well written and well worth reading.
