About the Bowden Challenge
Dr. Tim Bowden, cancer biology researcher, was diagnosed with Parkinson disease in 2007. Tim and his wife, Diane, have always maintained a very active lifestyle.
Soon after his diagnosis, Tim added the Parkinson-specific exercise known as PWR!Moves to help him target his PD symptoms. Tim joined the first PWR!Gym class in 2010, which helped him and Diane discover the effectiveness that PWR!Moves made in his life and in the lives of others living with PD.
Wanting to support and promote the work of PWR!, Tim and Diane began fundraising for the non-profit through hiking events which have grown into PWR! in the Park featuring the Bowden Challenge.
Register today to take the Bowden Challenge!
