We all know my dad affectionately as "Griz" or "Grizzly," a name he has cherished for many years. After suffering from Alzheimer's for a number of years, he finally succumbed to this terrible disease last year.
Griz loved the outdoors, be it camping, hiking, or bike riding. One of the tales he often told was of his favorite bike ride from Brooklyn to Montauk Point. In his memory, this coming September, myself and a few friends are going to be following his path - the ~120 miles from Brooklyn to Montauk Point. However, we will be riding over a two-day weekend; my dad biked the distance in one.
If you can, in his honor, please donate to the Alzheimer's Association to help stop this disease or help those that have it.
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 we ride, we raising funds to advance research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s. Thank you for cheering us on.
