Why I Ride: I ride for Richard Prevost (my father-in-law) and Lorna (a women like a grandma to our family). They are my reason, but so are the hundreds of others that I now know affected by Alzheimer's disease. I ride for Jess' mom. I ride for Don's wife. I ride for Sarah's dad. I ride for them all. I ride for those you know that have Alzheimer's or other dementias.
I am determined to go the distance for all those affected by Alzheimer’s. I am inspired by the strength of 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.
