I am riding for my husband Geno Meyers. He was a kind, gentle man who experienced young-onset, early-stage Alzheimer's. He’s was an athlete, an outdoorsman, a gold miner, a teacher, a wonderful husband and father. He died in October 2018. I lost a little of him every day for 10 years. I have received $11,900 in donations thus far so raised the bar to $13,000. I am continuing to fundraise until November 10. Please help me find an end to Alzheimer's.
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. This is why I am asking for your support. I am participating in 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.
