Why I Ride: As an architect specializing in the design of senior living communities, I am humbled by the dedication and compassion that I see from caregivers and families of those afflicted with Alzheimer's. My family has also recently experienced this. One of my dear cousins, Howard "Pete" Wilson has recently passed due to Alzheimer's. That is why I am dedicating my ride to the memory of Pete and I'm determined to go the distance for him, his family and all those others whose lives are 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.
There is no shortage of ideas in Alzheimer’s research, but there is a shortage of dollars. This is why I am asking for your support. For the 4th year in a row, 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.
