Join the Alzheimer's Association and Iowa State University Head Football Coach Paul Rhoads and his wife Vickie, on SUNDAY, JUNE 21, 2015 for the 6th annual A Ride to Remember motorcycle event to raise money for those affected by Alzheimer's disease or other dementia.
This Father’s Day event will be a special one, as Coach and his family join to honor their father and remember their mother. This day also happens to be the longest day of the year (the summer solstice), which is a day the Alzheimer’s Association encourages individuals to do what they love to do, all day to raise awareness for this disease.
So join Coach Rhoads and over 600 other riders as they do what they love and help raise awareness for Alzheimer’s disease!
NEW this year, the BBQ tailgate, check-in and meet & greet with Coach Rhoads will take place BEFORE the motorcycle ride, beginning on the NORTH side of Jack Trice Stadium. Parking will be available in the ticket office parking lot and the lot between Hilton and Jack Trice. Following the BBQ, Coach will lead riders as they make their way around Central Iowa. Cost of $35 per person includes the ride, meet & greet with Coach, an event shirt and a BBQ tailgate. The annual purple bandanna will be available at the event for a recommended donation of $5 a piece.
