“Alzheimer’s is a nasty disease that affects too many of our family and friends. My late Grandma was impacted by Parkinson’s and Dementia and fought till the end of the journey in 2023. Over the last year, my family has seen how much it has affected her and her ability to live a normal life. Working with this organization is a huge passion of mine. I couldn`t be more excited to use the skills I have learned over the years in my professional career and passion for riding a bike to help Pedal For Alzheimer’s. My goal at Pedal for Alzheimer’s is to one day say we have found a cure for this nasty disease.” – Monk
