Soliciting support for the Ride 2 Remember

LET’S SEE YOUR COMPANY LOGO ON THE FRONT OF THIS JERSEY!

Coming up this summer I will be bicycling for three weeks in Alaska, raising money and awareness for Alzheimer’s.  I’m currently soliciting sponsors for the tour – company logos will be printed on the jersey. There’s a lot of payback for a tax-deductible donation including a complimentary Ride 2 Remember jersey, weekly postcards from the road, and the benefit of knowing you’re helping support a good cause.

If you would like details on how to get involved or if you want me to speak to your group or organization contact me at [email protected]

A copy of the sponsor letter and various levels of donations are posted below.

Simplest way to make a donation by check:

Thanks for the help. Tour leaves end of June 2013.   Judy Steffes

Dear Tour Supporter:
Did you know by the year 2030, when the first wave of Baby Boomers reach 85, there will be an estimated 3.5 million people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in the United States compared with 2.7 million today?  In fact almost 50 percent of those 85 or older will have some form of memory loss.
This coming summer I am bicycling three weeks in Alaska, raising money and awareness for Alzheimer’s.   The mission of the ride is to draw attention to the disease while also promoting an active lifestyle. My father suffers from Alzheimer’s and I’ve been encouraged by the impact music and exercise have made in his life.
The tour will be featured on an online travel blog (http://imthebikewriter.blogspot.com) and publicized on radio, newspaper and other media outlets including social media like Facebook and Twitter.
Through humor, adventure and fulfilling a need for escapism, the tour is meant to provide hope via stories and photos to those individuals and families living with Alzheimer’s. 
I am working in cooperation with Cedar Community, a continuum of care retirement community and a qualified 501(c) 3 non-profit organization based in West Bend, Wisconsin.  Cedar Community, which works directly with Alzheimer’s, will be the primary benefactor.  For more information about Cedar Community please visit their website at www.cedarcommunity.org.
I invite you to participate as the primary corporate sponsor through one $10,000 tax-deductible contribution. Your business will be promoted to thousands showing your company’s community involvement and dedication to a worthy cause.

The upcoming tour’s success will be made possible by supportive sponsors like you. Please note: 100 percent of your donation will go directly to Alzheimer’s programs which could positively impact the life of your family or friends.
