Bike4Alz’s first mile came during the summer of 2010. Their founder Tyler Jury experienced the pain of losing his grandfather, Barret Cummings, to Alzheimer’s. Tyler and five of his fraternity brothers, inspired by the recent death, crossed the country on bikes to raise money for Alzheimer’s research.
Getting off the ground wasn’t easy, but Tyler and his brothers were filled with purpose. That first team worked tirelessly during the 18 months of preparation and the nine-week trek from San Diego to Yorktown. The final result: nearly $60,000 raised for research and the foundation for future rides.
Six years and four rides later, Bike4Alz has covered over 10,000 miles and raised nearly $200,000 for research.
They stand on the shoulders of giants. However, there’s more work to be done.
A portion of every Bike4Alz cap purchased will be donated to the Bike4Alz organization, so please help support their cause. Thank you!
