Ride to End ALZ joins El Tour; looking for cyclists to help its Cause

We continue to get some great non-profit partners as part of the El Tour team for the upcoming Banner – University Medicine 39th El Tour de Tucson. A new partnership comes from Alzheimer’s Association – Desert Southwest Chapter.

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.

They are looking for cyclists. You can register here if you’d like to ride for the non-profit.

This is why they 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 El Tour 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.
