Like many of you who have a loved one suffering from alzheimers or dimentia it is a painful time for all affected. I saw my mom slowly decline from the disease and had an Uncle that suffered from Alzheimers. You feel hepless not being able to alleviate the frustration, agony and sorrow of your loved one and knowing that it will only get progressively worse. This year, I decided to take action and will be particpating in A Ride to Remember.
By participating in A Ride to Remember, I'm taking on the enormous physical challenge and personal adventure of cycling across South Carolina. I've also committed to raising awareness and funds to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association®.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Now is the time to come together to change the course of this disease!
Please support my efforts by making a donation. All funds raised benefit the Alzheimer's Association and its work to enhance care and support programs and advance research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's disease.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer’s disease! Your support means the world to me on this memorable journey!
