Rona Altschuler, volunteer Chair of the Peninsula Walk to End Alzheimer’s, will be biking 3,100 miles from California to Florida with WomanTours to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease, and to celebrate the memory of her mother, Joyce S. Price, who passed away in 2011.
“I didn’t even have a bike when I decided to do this!” said Rona. But her days of running marathons were coming to an end and while on a plane ride she heard a man excitedly talking about his own bike trip. “I wanted to do that since I was 11; I used to ride my bike everywhere!” said Rona.
In addition to raising awareness of Alzheimer’s disease, Rona’s ride is also a fundraising opportunity. Money raised will help the Alzheimer’s Association advance research into the prevention, treatment and cure for Alzheimer’s, as well as funding the many educational and support services currently available to the millions already affected by the disease.
