Why I Ride:
For Freda (and others, including family, impacted by this disease)...
As I near my mom's 1 year anniversary of departing this earth and personally struggle with mojo during these very strange COVID times, this challenge appeared. I know "virtual challenges" and "virtual races" are everywhere right now, but haven't really appealed to me... til this one.
Mom, thanks for making this show up in my social feed today. Riding on my trainer for 2 hours on June 14th is the very very least I can do for you and to show support for all those impacted by Alzheimer's.
If anyone feels so inclined to make a contribution to the Alzheimer's Association where every dollar raised supports efforts to discover methods of treatment and prevention, Mom and I will be forever grateful... along with the 5 million Americans living with this disease, and the 16 million family members and friends who provide them with care.
