Riding to End Alzheimer's
More than 5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer's, including my grandmother. This number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Alzheimer's is devastating for the person affected as well as their family and friends, who watch as their loved one becomes a stranger. My great grandmother as well as my wife's grandmother have both suffered with and since passed from their dementia, and it is my hope that ongoing research can help us slow or stop the progress of this terrible disease.
By participating in A Ride to Remember, I am challenging myself both mentally and physically by committing to ride across the entire state of South Carolina. As part of my commitment, I am also working to raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer's Association, which is working relentlessly to advance the care, support, and treatment efforts for Alzheimer's affected patients and families.
Please support my efforts by making a donation. All funds raised benefit the Alzheimer's Association and its work to enhance care and support programs and advance research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's disease.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer’s disease! Your support means the world to me on this challenging but memorable journey!
