Why I Ride: It's simple. I ride for my dad. And for myself. Dad died in 2018, after a 12-year decline due to Alzheimers. His mother had it. It's fairly likely that either my brother or I will get it. I am doing my part to protect myself and 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.
