ALZ for one & one for ALZ
Welcome to the team page for “ALZ for one & one for ALZ”. Team Captain, Mike Allen, found the Ride to End ALZ in 2021 (the first year of the Texas ride) as an outlet for emotion while his dad began his Alzheimer’s battle. After two years of participating in this fundraiser, he returns for the third year with a team! Whether you have lost someone to Alzheimer’s or Dementia, have someone battling it currently, or are here to support someone who is dealing with this in any form or fashion ….. this is the team for you. Whether you want to ride the challenging 100 miles of hills or do an easier 10, 20, 40, or 60 mile route, we promise a fun time!! Mike’s son said we must have Jell-O shots at the after party so everybody has fun!
Why We Ride: Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. More than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s, and over 11 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.
