Alzheimer’s New Jersey Launches 48-Hour Cycling Feat

Alzheimer’s New Jersey Launches 48-Hour Cycling Feat

With summer heating up in the Garden State, what better way to exercise than for a good cause? Alzheimer’s New Jersey Board member and endurance cyclist Andy Dunberg is cycling 48 hours this weekend to raise money and awareness.

Dunberg, from Little Falls, NJ, aims to raise $50,000 toward research. He dedicates the ride to his father and aunt, both of whom passed after battling Alzheimer’s.

“Alzheimer’s robs people of their memories, their ability to complete even the simplest tasks, and eventually, without exception, their lives…” says Dunberg. “…the pain of losing loved ones in such an awful way has motivated me for more than 25 years to help other hurting families through my passion for endurance cycling.”

From Friday, June 19th at 7:00AM to Sunday, June 21st at 7:00AM, Dunberg will cycle the Livingston Oval in Livingston, NJ. Over the two continuous days, he anticipates cycling over 450 miles total.

“We are extremely grateful and inspired by Andy’s dedication…” says Ken Zaentz, President and CEO of Alzheimer’s New Jersey. “As the number of families impacted by Alzheimer’s grows in New Jersey, the help of people like Andy to support our programs is more important than ever.”

Alzheimer’s New Jersey encourages the Garden State to support Andy, whether by cheering him on or by donating. Every dollar goes toward research that can improve patients’ lives and work toward a cure.
