Hello, my name is Alex Stackhouse, and I am from Bowling Green, Kentucky. I am a junior at Western Kentucky University studying Accounting.

Alzheimer's is a terrible disease affecting millions of Americans and their families. I decided to join the 2018 Bike4Alz ride because I value family and spending time sharing memories with family and friends very highly in my life. I can't imagine a family member, friend, or myself not being able to remember the amazing experiences and adventures we have shared together.

Riding this summer, I believe I can really help make a difference in destroying this horrible disease and its effect on families. I am more than excited to bike from coast to coast to do my part in raising awareness to help fund research toward a cure.
