My Personal Fundraising Page
I have run marathons, I have walked for Alzheimer's research, but in 2020, I will be participating in the Ride to End Alz!
I will be participating in the 100 km ride in memory of my mother, Betty Blais, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in her early fifties, whom we lost on May 10, 2017.
I will be participating in this ride in memory of my uncle, William Allard, whom we lost on May 1, 2019, and to honor my aunt Janis, who is currently fighting this disease.
Alzheimer's Disease has affected my family worse than most, and frankly, I'm sort of sick of it, frankly, and it makes me angry. This is what motivates me to fight back.
I will ride with the hopes that no one should ever have to experience this again. 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's Disease. These are your friends and family, your neighbors, and your coworkers. These are people who have brought joy to their friends, family, neighbors and coworkers.
Right now, there is no shortage of ideas in Alzheimer's research- only dollars. By participating in the 2020 Ride to End Alz, I've committed to raising awareness and funds to advance the research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association®.
And you can help me. These dollars are desperately needed- for the more than 5.8 million Americans living with Alzheimer's, their 16 million caregivers, and millions more who have lost a loved one to this disease.
Please support my efforts by making a donation. All funds raised benefit the Alzheimer's Association and their ground breaking momentum in the field of Alzheimer's research. 90% of the funds raised go toward the Association's efforts to discover methods of treatment and prevention for Alzheimer's and other dementias.
Help me cycle towards a world with our first survivor and donate today!
