Why We Ride: This beautiful family photo was taken the day after our Mom's funeral. Our Dad, in the plaid shirt, knows he likes all of us, but doesn't really know who we are. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's dementia 5 and a half years ago. He was the absolute smartest guy any of us knew (and we've known a lot of smart people). He built a house, overhauled engines, created tools when he couldn't find the right one to do a job, and often showed his artistic side by welding beautiful fireplace hardware and wind chimes. No, none of these were part of his employment - it's just what he did. Our hearts are extremely saddened by the effects of this disease.
Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. More than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s, and over 11 million are acting as their caregivers.
We are going the distance 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.
