Help Team Doreen fight Alzheimer's
WE DID IT! YOU DID IT!
Sure, I had to crank out the 100 miles, but my family, my high school classmate, Don Di Felice, who volunteered once again in the crucial pit stops, and YOU are all helping to end the horrible scourge of Alzheimer's disease or at least to find an effective treatment.
In 2008 we lost our beloved Doreen (Deardorff) Moul to Alzheimer's. A year later we lost Paul, her husband and life partner of 65 years to a broken heart powered by a still-sharp mind.
Every year since there's been a new, sad reason. Mary Lou's sister. Judy and Mark's mother, Mary. Kerry's mom. Karen's mom. Gretchen's mom. And now, Tim's parents.
By participating in the RIDE to End Alzheimer's, my family and I have committed to raising awareness and funds to advance the research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association®. This was 15th 100-mile Ride to End Alzheimer's.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk and we must come together to change the course of this disease.
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.
I can never thank you enough for joining the fight against Alzheimer’s disease!
