Why I Ride: I am riding on June 14th for one of the most special people I’ve ever known, my Gaga. She was the most amazing, caring, and loving person, and I miss her Sunday Dinner's and Italian cooking so much! Alzheimer’s took her from us and to see how it affected not only her, but my entire family was something I will never forget. I ride in memory of her and for all of the amazing caretakers and family members of loved ones who are suffering from this terrible illness.
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.
