Meet Julie Captain, Sponsorhip Coordinator

Julie works for Northwestern Memorial Foundation in Chicago, lives in Evanston, is a big fan of the Paul Ruby Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and has been a lifelong recreational cyclist, having completed many centuries and long distance rides.  When not teaching her son how to shift gears or her daughter to ride without training wheels, she looks forward to helping all levels of riders in the 2011 Sub-5 Century Challenge raise as much money for Parkinson’s disease research as possible, creating meaningful sponsorship opportunities for businesses and corporations and completing the Sub-5 Century Challenge.
