Team ALZ rides on behalf of the Miami Valley Alzheimers Association for the upcoming Youngs Charity Bike Tour. The Alzheimers Association organization is one of four non profits who benefit from this awesome charity ride.
Why we ride:
Currently, there are over 22,000 people in the Dayton area who suffer with this terrible disease and that number is expected to triple by 2050. Alzheimers can begin 5-10 years before you are aware of the disease and its debilitating effects can last for 20 years. That makes caregiving for this disease the costliest of of all major diseases. Alzheimers is the only major disease without a cure. It kills more people than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. It does not discriminate and does effect just the elderly. A friend of ours was disagnosed in her early fifties. Alzheimers is not a natural part of aging and it is always fatal. We need to find a cure!
That is why your donation is so critical! The money we raise provides education, care and support to those effected by this devastating disease. All these services are provided FREE of charge through the Alzheimers Association. Your donations also help the Alzheimers Association to fund critical research to promote clinical trials and ultimately, to find a cure!
Please help us to Fight for a World Without Alzheimers!
