Teresa Jackson of Frederick County rode 300 miles with her son, Lincoln, during the Ride Across Virginia cycling event and raised more than $20,000. Her ultimate goal is to reach $25,000 for the Parkinson’s Foundation and increase awareness of Parkinson’s disease.

The five-day ride started in South Hill. She went through the Middleburg area on April 25 and ended the trip in Winchester.

This ride would have been a challenge for anyone who wasn’t already an avid cyclist, but for Jackson, 58, it was even tougher because she also suffers from Parkinson’s disease.
