The Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter is currently recruiting members for its
inaugural “Bike 2 Remember” (B2R) Team. Team members will have the opportunity to ride in the “TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour” on May 2, 2010.

The Chapter will cover the $100 entry fee, provide training, an event day t-shirt and opportunities to have their family story featured in local media.
The New York City Chapter serves the more than 250,000 New Yorkers who are currently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease along with their caregivers and family members.
