My Personal Fundraising Page
By participating in A Ride to Remember, I'm taking on the physical challenge to ride 252 miles during the month of July. This year the ride is virtual. I have been reluctant as a casual rider to undertake the ride in the past from Simpsonville to Mt. Pleasant, all 252 miles over 3 days. This year I was planning to do the first leg to Newberry. Now that it is virtual, I plan to do the whole 252 miles.
My dad rode his single speed balloon tire bike 100 miles from his home in Walterboro to visit his grandparents in Georgia as a teenager. At age 18 he landed at Normandy as a gunner in a tank under Gen. Patton. When he died at age 65 his Alzheimer's was so severe that he did not even recognize me. This illness is devastating to those affected and their families. I am committed to raising awareness and funds to advance the care, support and 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. Now is the time to 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 provide care support for all affected and advance research toward better treatments, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's disease.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer’s! Your support means the world to me on this memorable journey!
