Hey friends and family! As most of you know, Alzheimer's has deeply impacted my family. I have lost two people I deeply love. I'm riding for my Aunt Kathy and my Grandpa Steffens. On October 11, I will be riding in a 62-mile bike ride with 100% of the proceeds to benefit research of Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. Help me as I set out on this journey to raise awareness and fundraise for the Alzheimer's Association.
Why I Ride: 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 and supporting me from near and far!
