Carson Ball 

My name is Carson Ball. I'm a sophomore from Nicholasville, Kentucky, majoring in finance.

I am biking across the country because it's time that a cure is found for Alzheimer's. While I don't personally know anyone with this disease, I know how catastrophic it can be to a family to have someone diagnosed with it. With over 40,000 people diagnosed each year, I am bound to be personally affected by this disease at some point in my life. It's time for a change. I am biking across the country to make a brighter future full of memories for me, my friends and family, and everyone who has been affected by this horrible disease.
