2021 was a challenging year as we found out that my Dad has Alzheimer's. I'm riding this year to honor my Dad and show him that I'm determined to go the distance for all those affected by Alzheimer's or other dementia.
This July, I'll be participating in Ride to End ALZ South Carolina, a unique 252-mile journey for cycling enthusiasts. Previously known as A Ride to Remember, this event raises funds for the research, care and support efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
I ride because I want to do everything in my power to bring awareness to the disease and to fight for my Dad. I am inspired by the strength of the more than 6 million Americans living with Alzheimer's, and over 11 million family members and friends who provide them with care. I want to help speed up scientific progress toward better treatments and prevention.
Right now, there is no shortage of ideas in Alzheimer's research — only dollars. That's why I am asking for your support.
By participating on the Ride to End ALZ South Carolina, I'm fueling support services and cutting-edge research to change the trajectory of Alzheimer's disease. Each dollar I raise helps advance research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer's and provide help for those facing dementia today.
Thank you for donating and cheering me on!
