I Ride for Patricia DiCocco and to Cure Alzeimer's
When I came to this area 33 years ago, one of the first people I met was Larry DiCocco and his wife Patty. Not only would Larry become my accountant and a great friend who has done so much for me and so many, but over time, I would get to know everyone in this amazing family.
Tremendous parents to their five now grown children, with kids of their own. A family that anyone would be proud of. You can see their strength in the photo I have chosen on my page.
But last year, I was devastated to learn that Patty was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and his now at least three years into her struggle for which there is no cure, but always hope.
That’s why on June 21st I am swapping out my Blue and White Jersey for Purple for one epic day and riding 60 to 100 miles for Patty as a tribute to this remarkable woman and family. Please help me help me support the DiCocco family, pay tribute to all those we have lost, and to put an end to Alzheimer’s.
Right now, there is no shortage of ideas in Alzheimer's research- only dollars. By participating in the 2019 Ride to End Alzheimer's, I've committed to raising awareness and funds to advance the research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association®.
And you can help me. These dollars are desperately needed- for the more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer's, their 16 million caregivers, and millions more who have lost a loved one to this disease.
Please support my efforts by making a donation. All funds raised benefit the Alzheimer's Association and their ground breaking momentum in the field of Alzheimer's research. 90% of the funds raised go toward the Association's efforts to discover methods of treatment and prevention for Alzheimer's and other dementias.
Help me cycle towards a world with our first survivor and donate today!
