Why I Ride: As many of you know my father, Brian Igoe, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in October of 2020 and is bravely fighting this disease. Since his diagnosis, much in his life has changed including no longer being able to drive a car or ride a bike. My dad was known for riding his bike from time to time - and from state to state - and I can think of nothing more fitting than riding to support him and the more than 6 million Americans living with this disease. Our team - Team M.O.M. (Macs on a Mission) - is riding to support my dad and all those who are impacted by Alzheimer's. The team is made of up family and friends, many of whom ride as part of the MacGregor (Mac) group, which my dad has been a part of for many years. My family is grateful and inspired by their unwavering support and friendship
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.
