A message from Bruce Lamb, Ph.D., Alzheimer’s Breakthrough Rider and Chair
Thank you and congratulations! With your help, the Alzheimer’s Breakthrough RideSM has collected 100,000 signatures for a petition asking Congress to make Alzheimer’s disease a national priority. We deeply appreciate your efforts to make this goal a reality.
On Sept. 21, World Alzheimer’s Day, the Ride will culminate in our nation’s capital as researchers who collectively cycled more than 4,500 miles cross-country deliver signatures to Congress. These riders are sending a critical message on our behalf: Alzheimer’s disease can no longer be ignored. We must have additional resources for research, care and support.
But this isn’t the finish line in the fight against Alzheimer’s. Take further action today:
- Collect additional petition signatures. We need even more support when we get to Capitol Hill! Forward this e-mail to three friends and ask them to sign the petition. More signatures will create a bigger impression on World Alzheimer’s Day.
- Go purple on Sept. 21, World Alzheimer’s Day. To recognize the global fight against Alzheimer’s disease, wear purple — the color of Alzheimer’s awareness.
- Donate to the cause. Make a gift that fuels additional resources for Alzheimer care, support and research efforts.
Thank you for helping to make Alzheimer’s disease a national priority. We’re proud to share your voice with Congress on World Alzheimer’s Day.
