Why I Ride: I am riding in honor of my Dad, Jimmie Richardson, who lost his battle with Dementia a few years ago. I am also riding in honor of my Uncle who has been diagnosed with Alzheimers.
I have witnessed first hand how this disease affects people, and family members. I pray for all of those who are dealing with Alzheimers or Dementia.
I plan to ride 100 miles on August 29, 2021. Although I am riding virtually, I'm sure I will not be alone.
I am determined to go the distance for all those affected by Alzheimer’s. I am inspired by the strength of the more than 5 million Americans living with this disease, and the 16 million family members and friends who provide them with care. I am also inspired by science.
Right now, there is no shortage of ideas in Alzheimer’s research — only dollars. Which is why I am asking for your support. I am participating on the Ride to End ALZ, a fully-supported, one day fundraising event where every dollar raised supports the Alzheimer’s Association’s efforts to discover methods of treatment and prevention for Alzheimer’s disease.
With each mile I ride, I am raising funds to advance research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s. Thank you for cheering me on.
