Why We Ride:
We're riding in honor of Kitty Froehlich. Kitty is the mom of Kris Albert, Laura Miller, and Chip Froehlich. Kitty's been living with Alzheimer's dementia since 2014. She is managing her disease with the help of her family, her dear friend Karen, and the caregivers at her personal care community.
Our ride will take place on Monday, August 22nd. Our team will be riding 42 miles round trip - from York city to the Maryland line by way of the Heritage Rail Trail. If you're a rider who wants to join the team we welcome you! (You can also ride a shorter distance if you'd like!)
If you're not a rider but you'd like to volunteer on the day of the ride, please contact Kris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stop back to our site soon to learn more about Kitty and her life lived well! We'll be sharing some stories here very soon!
Until then, here's a bit about Alzheimer's disease and why we are riding for a treatment and a cure!
Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. More than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s, and over 11 million are acting as their caregivers.
We are going the distance for all those affected while raising funds and awareness to advance research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s.
Right now, there is no shortage of ideas in Alzheimer’s research — only dollars. But together, we can help change that. 100 percent of the funds raised from this event will go toward the Association’s efforts to discover methods of treatment and prevention for Alzheimer's and other dementias.
Alzheimer’s touches all of us, and it will take all of us to end it. Please join our team or donate today.
