Tom's Cross Country ride for Mom and Lowell
What are we doing:
Tom is riding from his home in Northern Virginia to the care facility near San Francisco. He is supported by Tim and Bikes@Vienna (https://www.bikesatvienna.com 703-938-8900)
And inspired and encouraged by my friend Jeff!
I am self-funding the ride.Any and all donations go 100% to Alz.
The rest of the team are participating in local events to help raise funds and awareness.
Why We Ride:
Mom; Janet Schmetz:
Widowed Navy wife, now in her 80's, nurse, strong woman, mother of 8 children plus 4 more, and great cook, after taking care of all of us, outliving two husbands is now unable to take care of herself.
Lowell Hunter: (Lowell and son, Lane above)
Engineer, in his late 50’s, devoted family man with two sons, (his eldest with special needs also requires 24 hour support), loyal friend, strong avid cyclist, thrill-seeker and lover of the ocean now needs full time support with everyday tasks of life
We are determined to go the distance for all those affected by Alzheimer’s. We are inspired by the strength of the more than 6 million Americans living with this disease, and the over 11 million family members and friends who provide them with care.
With each mile, we raise funds to advance research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s.
Thank you for cheering us on.
