Why I Ride: Last year, after a 10-year battle with Alzheimer's, my amazing Mamma, Antonina Babbi, passed away at the age of 90. Mom was one of those people who gave from the heart. She exuded love, warmth, and caring to all who were lucky enough to know her. After 10 years, the Alzheimer’s robbed her of the ability to communicate but it never robbed her of that contagious and beautiful spirit.
I am riding for my Mamma and to raise funds to support 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. Every dollar raised by this ride goes directly to the Alzheimer’s Association.
Any level of support is appreciated. Thank you for cheering me on and for remembering my Mamma.
