Wayland Man Rides 100 Miles to End Alzheimer’s

Paul Kussell of Wayland will cycle 100 miles to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research on Saturday, June 9 for the Alzheimer’s Association, Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter’s RIDE to End Alzheimer’s.

“My father had Alzheimer’s and my mother had dementia,” says Kussell. “This will be my sixteenth year participating in the RIDE. I participate in other rides, but this one is the best!”

Paul is excited to return to the 2018 RIDE and take on the 100 mile course. He is determined to raise important awareness and funds so that there may one day be a cure.

Starting and finishing at Odiorne State Park in Rye, NH, the RIDE provides a 2-, 30-, 62- and 100-mile route through the towns of coastal New Hampshire and the north shore of Massachusetts. Formerly called Memory Ride, the RIDE to End Alzheimer’s grew from a small, family-inspired event to a cycling challenge attracting riders throughout New England and beyond. Since the event began 22 years ago, the event has raised over $5,000,000 for Alzheimer’s and dementia research.

“Our vision is a world without Alzheimer’s and research into disease-modifying preventative measures, treatments and ultimately a cure is the key to making that happen,” shared Jim Wessler, President and CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association, MA/NH Chapter. According to the MA/NH Chapter, ninety percent of the funds raised at the RIDE given to research restricted grants for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The remaining ten percent of the proceeds fund programs and services in both states.
