The annual event features a slew of other awesome activities for parents and their kids to enjoy throughout the day, all in the spirit of raising funds and awareness for The MPS II Research Fund at The Isaac Foundation.

MPS II, also known as Hunter syndrome, is a rare and debilitating genetic disorder that impacts children. Patients suffering from Hunter Syndrome lack an enzyme in their blood that breaks down cellular waste in the body, causing painful physical symptoms for those living with the condition.

Fortunately, there are promising gene therapy projects underway that are showing significant and promising results in the lab setting. It is hoped that these treatments will enter the clinical trial stage soon, which is what this event hopes to raise funds for.

In addition to helping to raise funds for a cure, you can also enjoy Axe Throwing courtesy of Axewood, Sumo Wrestlingand a beer tasting station courtesy of North Shore craft brewery Beere Brewing. Hey, parents deserve to have some fun too!

Event is rain or shine and offers bike valet by donation.
