Every year Jake’s Ride brings together more than 1,000 people from in and around the Millburn-Short Hills, New Jersey community to support dystonia and Parkinson’s research.  The Ride is a family-oriented fundraiser with several courses of varying degrees of challenge traveling through the township.  A one-mile walking path is also offered.   The day begins early for volunteers, sponsors and participants. Adding to the day’s enjoyment is live music, food and beverages, plus fun activities for our youngest participants.   
 
The success of Jake’s Ride is possible due to the generosity of volunteers, sponsors and participants. The outpouring of support received brings better treatments and a cure for movement disorders one step closer for Jake and his fellow warriors!
 
TAP Millburn/Short Hills is an official media sponsor of Jake's Ride.
