Hello family and friends,
When I was 12 years old I lost my dear grandmother, Antônia Alves Pereira to Alzheimer's. She battled Alzheimer's for 3 years and her health declined really fast during that period of time. Fast forward 30 years later and I've met a great group of people that ride their bikes and raise money to end this terrible disease. I could not be more proud to join them this year (2021) in A Ride to Remember in loving memory of my grandmother.
By participating in A Ride to Remember, I'm committing to ride 252 miles and to raise 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 provide care support for all affected and advance research toward better treatments, prevention, an, ultimately a cure for Alzheimer's disease.
Thank you for joining the fight to #ENDALZ! Your support means the world to me.
