My name is Davis Church and I am a Junior from Louisville, Kentucky. This ride initially got me interested because of how adventurous and cool it sounded. But as I began coming to some of the first meetings last year and discussing the ride I realized the true reason why I want to do it. Alzheimers is, in my opinion, one of the worst diseases that is out there. The saddest thing is that there is not much at all that can be done about this disease. There is an immediate need for research and money. I am also excited to spend 2 months with some of the best guys I know.
