My name is Alex Crittenden and I am from Oldham County and I’m currently a sophomore at Western Kentucky University studying Sports Management with a minor in Broadcasting. My goal is to go into the sports radio field.
Bike4alz is something I am very passionate about. This is such a cool organization that allows me to raise money for the Alzheimer’s association, I have had family members who have had complications with the disease and have heard stories of other people’s family members with the disease, and this is exactly why I want to be on this trip. This is a great way to help people in need while also having a once in a lifetime experience.
I am a support driver for the team this year because I want to raise as much money I can for the Alzheimer’s Association and put an end to this disease. I am excited to meet people along the way and tell them that I am on this ride for their family members affected by this disease and tell them that we are riding for a cure.
My name is Tyler Kirby and I am from Alvaton, Kentucky. I am currently a sophomore at WKU pursuing a major in marketing. Alzheimer’s disease has personally affected my family, like many others, and I decided to drive to help the fight to end alz.
My grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 42. She battled the disease for the better half of 20 years. She was one of the most loving ladies I ever knew and always saw the best in people. Alzheimer’s disease took everything away from her and seeing her in the final stages is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to go through. She passed away in March of my freshman year of college. She always said I would do something great someday, but little did she know, she would be my inspiration to go on this ride. She is the reason I am driving for the 2019 ride and am joining the fight to put an end to Alzheimer’s disease.
This summer I am driving for my grandmother and for all of the people who have lost loved ones to Alzheimer’s disease. If you are reading this, please help join us in our fight to end Alzheimer’s disease. Look for Bike4alz in a city near you and please follow and join our cause.
