Fourteen WKU Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) fraternity brothers biked from San Francisco, CA to Virginia Beach, VA in hopes of raising money for Alzheimer’s research. Bike4Alz started in 2010 by Tyler Jury after losing his grandfather to Alzheimer’s. That year Tyler and five of his fraternity brothers crossed the country on bikes to raise money for Alzheimer’s research. Since then, Bike4Alz has covered over 13,000 miles and raised nearly $250,000 for the American Alzheimer’s Association.
This year’s group covered 70 miles a day, stopping in various cities along the way to spread awareness of the impact the disease. They reached Virginia Beach on Saturday, July 20 covering more than 3,500 miles, visiting eleven states and earning more than $ for Alzheimer’s research.
