Riding For One Purpose

Riding For One Purpose

Ten cyclists are riding across the country to raise awareness for Alzheimer's research.
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.
