Why I Ride: I am determined to go the distance for all those affected by Dementia. 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 want to help more people to be educated on this horrific disease so we can learn early warning signs and take actions to try to slow down the progression while we work on a cure.
Our family was thrown into a complete spiral as we saw mom change in what seemed like overnight to us. The progression of the disease was faster than what we could comprehend. She was first diagnosed in Dec 2020- and passed Feb 2nd 2021.
We need more answers!!!
Right now, there is no shortage of ideas in Dementia and 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.
I will take the day and ride 100 miles. 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.
This ride is for you Mom.
