2024 Ride to End ALZ - Texas

Papa's Purple People Eaters

Here we go! Third time riding to End ALZ! First we did 70 miles in DC/Virginia... then we took on the three day, 255 mile ride across SC... and now we are going to ride 100 miles through the hill country of Texas! Help us make our goal of raising $5000 and working towards finding a cure for Alzheimer's disease!

Our team - Papa's Purple People Eaters - rides in memory of my grandfather Larry Conway. He fought a long hard battle with ALZ, and we lost him too early in life. We also ride in honor of his wife, Joyce, and all the other caregivers who have the toughest job of watching the disease take shape and experiencing all the negativity that comes with it. We hope our contributions can make a difference for victims and their families!

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.
