Riding to End Alzheimer's
More than 5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer's, and this number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Alzheimer's is devastating for the person affected as well as their family and friends, who watch as their loved one becomes a stranger.
My Grandmother is currently living with Alzheimer's. It is terrifying and heartbreaking to see first hand the effects of this terrible disease. In addition to Grandma Jo, my great grandmother as well as my wife's grandmother have both suffered with and since passed from their dementia, and it is my hope that ongoing research can help us slow or stop the progress of this terrible disease.
I ride for my family. I ride for a CURE!
Last year, I rode 252 miles per week in the month of July equaling 1008 miles. Since it was virtual, I said I’d put my money where my mouth was. I ride, you donate. AND with your help, we have raised almost $3,000 the past two years to beat Alzheimer’s!
By participating in A Ride to Remember, I am challenging myself both mentally and physically by committing to ride across the entire state of South Carolina. As part of my commitment, I am also working to raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer's Association, which is working relentlessly to advance the care, support, and treatment efforts for Alzheimer's affected patients and families.
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 as well as advance research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's disease.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer’s disease! Your support means the world to me on this challenging but memorable journey!
