Team Purple Colorado
What is Team Purple: Team Purple is for anyone looking for a team to join. Team Purple is a community to meet people, a place to get help with fundraising ideas, encouragement to get out riding and to share experiences living with loved ones having Alzheimer’s. You can be on Team Purple if you ride in-person or remotely, we are open to riders from all over the world to join us as well. Beginners or seasoned riders--all are welcome. We have had long boarders on the team in Colorado and one challenge event rider even kayaked (ok, it was me-I had a leg injury, so I wore the jersey while kayaking!)
If you decide to form your own family and friends’ team later on--no worries—Team Purple is here to help you do just that! If you meet someone from another team and want to change teams, we can help you do that as well.
Team Purple can help you on the road to the ride and even on ride day. There are plenty of experienced riders and fundraisers on the team to help you get started, come up with new ideas and keep you motivated. On ride day there is a Team Purple tent to hang out in and meet people, Team Purple ribbons to help you identify fellow team members out on the trails, and even fun activities to do after the ride.
Why We Ride: Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s, and 16 million are acting as their caregivers.
We are going the distance for all those affected while raising funds and awareness to advance research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s.
Right now, there is no shortage of ideas in Alzheimer’s research — only dollars. But together, we can help change that. 100 percent of the funds raised from this event will go toward the Association’s efforts to discover methods of treatment and prevention for Alzheimer's and other dementias.
Alzheimer’s touches all of us, and it will take all of us to end it. Please join our team or donate today.
