In these unprecedented times when we all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and society at large, the Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation is launching our inaugural virtual race series for all ages and abilities.

Riding on the success of their Cycle4ALZ , the Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation will run a virtual ride in February 2022. All to keep as many people connected, fit and sane in this period of unprecedented isolation, and to raise as much needed money for the foundation.

Whether you’re 8 or 108, you can now ride for Alzheimer’s. All competitors welcome to ride virtually with the Cycle4Alz community from within the boundaries of your home and immediate surroundings.

Each Participant will receive the official race t-shirt and a certificate of appreciation from the foundation. Thank you and let’s have some fun!

What does Alzheimer’s have to do with me?

Alzheimer’s disease is the disease that you don’t think about until it affects you, or someone you know, personally. It’s the “scary” disease with no cure.  The disease that no one wants to talk about.  It’s just too frightening to think about.  If we did, we would have to imagine someone we love who is now a stranger, even to themselves.  Not only a stranger, but someone completely incapable of taking care of themselves at some point in the disease progression.  Completely incapable of the everyday things we take for granted.  What if you forgot how to brush your teeth?  The brush is completely foreign- you, literally, have no idea what it is used for.  Someone you love patiently explains it to you and teaches you to use it, but just a few short moments after, it’s forgotten until you do this same dance tomorrow.

One in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. One in three!  Alzheimer’s disease kills more than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined.  Between 2000 and 2015, deaths from heart disease have decreased 11%, while deaths from Alzheimer’s disease have increased 123%!

So, chances are, at some point in your life, you will be touched by Alzheimer’s in one way or another. A family member, a friend, a coworker.  Every 65 seconds someone in the US develops Alzheimer’s disease.  It has become the leading cause of death in the United States.
