Nick Marsney RIDE to End Alzheimer's
By participating in the RIDE to End Alzheimer's, I've committed to raising awareness and funds to advance the research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association®.
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.
The event is a 100-mile bike ride across Southern New Hampshire. This will be my 4th year riding for the Alzheimer’s Association, As always the ride is especially meaningful as some of you may know, my mother Linda had been diagnosed with this disease in 2017. As you can imagine this has been very difficult for my family. Though she is in the early stages, we know the struggles that lie ahead having seen my grandmother Irene succumb to this disease 14 years ago. Though it doesn’t seem fair that our family has to go through this again, I will do my best to make a difference and stay positive keeping in mind the person my mother is and the person that my grandmother was. My mome can find the good in almost anyone, and can always make you feel welcome and loved. That is the person I will be riding for. This year I am happy to say that we have 4 great guys joining the team. We welcome John O'connor, Jon Walsh, John Geary and Tom McCarthy. Like my brother Brent and I, Tom will be riding for his mom who is also fighting her own battle with this disease. Together we will be riding as team “FALZ” where our goal is simple, aiming to raise money and awareness to help put an end to Alzheimer’s.
