Why I Ride: Last April, I lost my beloved grandfather, John Howells, to dementia. For years, I witnessed a great man battle back against the frustrations and challenges he had been dealt. In his honor, I want to do all that I can to ensure a cure can be found for Alzheimer's and associated dementias so that the more than 5 million Americans living with this disease, and the 16 million family members and friends who provide them with care can live their lives to the fullest.
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 and I am honoring the memory of a man who helped shape my life. And I'm further honored to do this side-by-side with one of my lifelong best friends, Stacie Marshall, as we work together on Spinning Up A Cure from across the country on our Peloton bikes.
Thank you for your support!
