I will be riding to end Alzheimer's this year in memory of my mother and my Aunt Rose who passed away this year. Unfortunately, this disease has hit my family hard with my Gram, Uncle Dick, and Aunt Margie all having suffered from various forms of dementia. As with many of you, I also have many other friends and family who have been impacted over the years by this insidious disease. Sadly, I've seen first hand how people, especially people I've know to be exceptionally bright and witty, have become trapped in a progressively failing mind and body.
Becoming involved with the 2020 Ride to End Alz, however, I'm excited to see how much progress has been made in identifying the causes of dementia and working towards a cure. I truly feel this is a disease that we could see cured in our lifetime! That's why I've committed to raising awareness and funds to advance the research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association®.
Please support my efforts by making a donation. For a suggested donation of $50, I will wear a purple ribbon in honor of someone you know who is suffering, or who has suffered from dementia. 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!
