Hundreds of cyclists, from experienced to novice, are signing up for the Ride to End Alzheimer’s to raise money and awareness to fight Alzheimer’s disease. Set for Saturday, July 13, the Ride to End ALZ offers a new 2-mile family option as well as a challenging 100-mile “century” ride, a “metric century” of 62 miles and 30-mile “introductory” option. The Ride to End ALZ traverses towns in north central Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire.
The Ride to End ALZ benefits the Alzheimer’s Association’s® research efforts into causes, treatments and cures for Alzheimer’s, the degenerative, fatal brain disease that affects 5.4 million Americans. To date, the Ride to End ALZ has raised more than $3 million for research.
Starting and finishing at Fort Devens, Massachusetts, the Ride has become one of the state’s fastest-growing charity events.
