Did You Know…?

90% of funds raised through the RIDE to End Alzheimer’s supports the Alzheimer’s Association’s research grants program? 10% of funds raised provide care and support for families affected by Alzheimer’s disease right here in our Massachusetts and New Hampshire communities?

Help advance research for Alzheimer’s disease and support families facing this disease in your community by registering today!  We will help you reach your goals!


All registered participants of the 2018 RIDE to End Alzheimer’s will receive a specialized handbook with tips, tools, and ideas to help meet and even surpass your fundraising goal! Additionally, all registered participants have access to a fundraising mentorship through Association staff and the RIDE to End Alzheimer’s leadership committee. 

Your personal connection is what makes the difference.

Share your story!

As you fundraise, tell those you are asking why you are part of Team End ALZ. If you are riding in honor or in memory of a loved one, talk about them. You may quickly find that friends or colleagues also have a personal connection to Alzheimer’s that you were previously unaware of. Share your fundraising goal and show enthusiasm! Asking for donations is not comfortable for many people, so go with a style that best fits your personality and comfort level.

Quick Tips:

  • Get creative! Think of various ways you can engage friends, families, and coworkers such a running a social media promotion on your personal page
  • host a raffle by asking local businesses to donate items or gift cards
  • have a trunk or yard sale
  • ask for donations rather than gifts for holidays or your birthday
  • The possibilities are endless when you’re inspired! You never know who may have a connection to the cause or who will be touched by your exciting endeavor so make sure to encourage your networks to share your efforts with their own friends and family.
