Alzheimer's is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.
That's why ten boys from Western Kentucky are on a ride across the country to raise awareness for the terrible disease.
Bike For Alz started their ride in San Diego, and their final stop is Washington D.C., by July 19th; that's a 3,000 mile ride.
The cyclists bike between 70 to 90 miles each day.
But, before they put a foot to the pedal, they do a daily tribute where they dedicate their ride to someone affected by the disease.
"These guys give every ounce of effort to put an end to Alzheimer's; every pedal, every hill. It has been wonderful to be a part of this and realize we're a part of making a difference, to end Alzheimer's," said Brent Stephens, support driver.
