Why We Ride: Please join Cathy Harm, Laura Estes and Team H-E-B, as we ride for a cure for Alzheimers and all dementia related illnesses.
As we interact across H-E-B land, we sadly encounter so many who are affected by this illness with family members, friends and neighbors being diagnosed. The illness creates life changing circumstances and is devastating to the person with the disease along with their entire family. Laura and I know this first-hand. My Mom passed away from dementia in 2010, and Laura's Mom has also been diagnosed with the illness. I'm sure many of you can share similar stories.
Alzheimer's is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. More than 5 million Americans are living with it and 16 million are acting as their caregivers which is a 24-7 job.
So....we are going the distance, with Team H-E-B, for all those affected while raising funds and awareness to advance research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s.
Right now, there is no shortage of ideas in Alzheimer’s research — only dollars. But together, we can help change that. 100 percent of the funds raised from this event will go toward the Association’s efforts to discover methods of treatment and prevention for Alzheimer's and other dementias.
Alzheimer’s touches all of us, and it will take all of us to end it. Please join our team or donate today or do both! And you don't have to be an experienced cyclist to join. There are 4 routes to accommodate all levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced). If you've been wanting to try this, Laura and I would be honored. Feel free to reach out to either of us, and we can get you started! Join Team H-E-B! We need you!
