My story

[p][b][u]Racing for Alzheimers (without Charlie Dog)[/u][/b][/p][p]The [b]Transcontinental Race[/b] #TCRNo7 is the definitive self-supported 4000 km bicycle race across Europe.[/p][p]“[i]At the sharp end it is a beautifully hard bicycle race, simple in design but complex in execution. Factors of self reliance, logistics, navigation and judgement burden racers’ minds as well as their physiques. The strongest excel and redefine what we think possible while many experienced riders target only a finish”[/i][/p][p][b]This is my challenge, but many people and their families endure much bigger challenges by battling with the symptoms of dementia, namely Alzheimer’s. I’ve experienced first hand the effects this has on families and I want to do whatever I can to help families and people who suffer from Alzheimers to have a better quality of life and ultimately for sufferers of the disease to have a successful treatment in the future.[/b][/p][p][b]Please donate whatever you can, but more importantly share my story so others will donate as well.[/b][/p][p][b]#thediyschooltrip[/b][/p][p][b]#brestorbust[/b][/p][p][url=https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/]https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/[/url][/p][p][url=https://www.alzheimersresearchuk.org/]https://www.alzheimersresearchuk.org/[/url][/p][p][url=https://www.transcontinental.cc/tcrno7/]https://www.transcontinental.cc/tcrno7/[/url][/p][p]For those that don't understand the commitment to this project, here is a short video link.[/p][p][vmgvideo src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/197782959" width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""][/vmgvideo][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
