Back in 2013 a group of us formed the Memory Boosters in support of our moms, ,dads, aunts, and uncles that have suffered with Alzheimers. The catalyst was Lois McCartney's diagnosis and brave announcement, but oh so many more have been affected including - to name just a few - Carl Smith, Hertha Fraser, Janet Hoag, Beryl Frey. If you know Alzheimers at all, you know what it takes away.
But the ride gives us a way to fight back! Over the years we estimate we've raised over $50,000, 90% of which goes directly to research (with the balance going to local support programs and outreach). This year we can do even better!
Plus, it's super fun, healthy, and there is a distance for everyone. In short, there is no reason not to come out and join us. Or if you can't for whatever reason, please consider a donation.
This year the ride is once again out of Odiorne State Park in Rye, NH. It is a beautiful ride (and by the way, really flat) on June 22nd.
