Pedaling across Canada to preserve memories

Meet Dave Adam, a champion for Alzheimer’s disease research. Dave is a Wisconsin man who is cycling across Canada in a 4,400 mile ride to help raise funds for Alzheimer’s disease programs at UW–Madison.

The bike ride spans Victoria to Newfoundland. Funds raised will support research on Alzheimer’s disease and related memory disorders, programs that provide learning opportunities to dementia care professionals and scientists-in-training in Wisconsin, research programs committed to building awareness, advocacy and solutions for the significant health disparities facing communities of color, and much more.

Dave began his journey on May 10 and expects to finish the route by July 4. You can follow along with Dave’s journey and donate to his fundraiser on his blog “Pedaling to Preserve Memories.”

A champion cyclist who previously biked across the United States, United Kingdom, and New Zealand, Dave is now also a Community Champion for The Future Needs Us Now – The Campaign for Wisconsin Medicine. Thanks to a generous matching pool, all donations raised for the campaign will be matched up to $125,000 until June 13.
