Herb's Personal Fundraising Page
I'm riding because I have seen and daily see the impact of this terrible disease! Over the last 10 years, my wife and I have lost grandmothers and aunts to the disease. In the last 5 years we have seen both of our mothers be affected directly by the "Thief" that steals pieces of memory and ability with no remorse.
In January of 2018, my mother-in-law, Barbara was taken by this wretched disease. In September of 2018, my mother, Janet Grant aka Jinx, succumbed to this damned disease. They are now at peace but NO ONE else should ever have to experience this.
Alzheimer's is a cruel and wrenching way to die - I want to do something to accelerate the research and stop the THIEF in it's tracks. You can too! Join Team Hi Jynx and ride with us!
2016 was our first year and each year we have increased our riders and our fundraising! The goal this year is to enlarge Team HiJynx and the monies raised. By increasing our riders, we will increase our impact in the communities we live and raise overall awareness of the need for more research, more caregiver support and more answers to this THIEF! I hope you will join - on bikes, alongside and in moral and financial support!
By participating in this event, I've committed to raising awareness and funds to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association(R).
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.
Thank you for joining Team Hi Jynx in this fight against Alzheimer's disease!
Thank you all!
