Why We Are Riding?: Last year, our father (Paul Dougharty) signed up for the 1st ever Ride to ALZ in Texas. He was riding in honor of his wife of 50 years! Our mother, Debbie, who was diagnosed with Early On-set Alzheimer’s at 56 years old. She was a brilliant woman, daughter, mother, grandmother, wife, teacher & librarian. She loved sharing her knowledge. While she is still with us in Memory Care she is 69 and this disease has robbed her of her motor skills and her memory. It's a tragic disease. This year the whole family is involved! Even my nephew, Nicholas, who is 13 and shares a birthday with Mom is riding. THIS IS WHY WE ARE RIDING!
Last year we raised $34,950!!!
More than 6 million Americans are living with this disease, which means more than 11 million family members are suffering along with them, while trying to provide the best care they can.
100% of Donations goes to Alzheimer’s Research!
Right now, there is no shortage of ideas in Alzheimer’s research— only dollars. Which is why I am asking for your support. 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 we ride, we are raising funds to advance research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s. We not only ride for Debbie but we ride for all of you who have or are working thru this with a friend or loved one. We ride for all!
Thank you for cheering us on!
