On September 18th 2021, I’ll be riding 120kms in the 2bike4alzheimer Ride, an event organised by Alzheimer Nederland, to raise funds for research into Alzheimer and other forms of Dementia.
Dementia is a terrible disease and unfortunately, more and more people worldwide are suffering from early onset dementia. At 65, my father was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s and last year, at the age of 72, he passed away from this debilitating illness. I'm raising funds in his memory, and for the countless others dealing with dementia in its many forms,
Your support is badly needed. Global dementia cases are forecasted to triple by 2050. Each year, an estimated 10 in every 100,000 individuals develop dementia with early onset. This corresponds to 350,000 new cases of early onset dementia per year, globally.
Please consider donating to my fundraiser (and therefore Alzheimer Netherlands) with whatever you can spare. Every little bit helps and this way we can work towards a future without dementia. Thank you, thank you!!
