Why I will bike 100 miles
Bike riding 100 miles on June 22nd will be a challenge for me but it not remotely the same challenge many families face when caring for a loved one with Alzheimers disease. My wife's family has dealt with this devastating disease and I have seen how difficult it is for families to develop a plan necessary for the care of their loved one. For years Kara's family dealt with the uncertainty and sadness that surrounds this awful disease and shed many tears. This disease takes an emotional and financial toll on most families and more needs to be done to offer these families support and hope. I am doing this ride in memory of my wife's father John Holland her Uncle Tom Dugan and Aunt Ann Linnehan.
Right now, there is no shortage of ideas in Alzheimer's research- only dollars. By participating in the 2019 Ride to End Alzheimer's, 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 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.
