RIDE TO END ALZ FUELS RESEARCH
As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s disease research, the Alzheimer’s Association is setting the pace of the field with innovation and investment — and you’re setting the pace with each pedal stroke.
Right now, there is no shortage of ideas in Alzheimer’s research — only dollars. But you can help change that. The funds you raise through Ride to End ALZ directly impact the Association’s ability to accelerate science toward methods of treatment and prevention for Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
