Follow the Bike4Alz riders

WKU students are on a 3,000-mile bike trip across the United States to raise awareness and funding for the Alzheimer’s Association. Bike4Alz, formerly known as Fijis Across America, began a three-month trip from International Falls, Minn., to Key West, Fla., on May 25. During the ride, Bike4Alz will stop in several major metropolitan areas to hold events with the local Alzheimer’s Association chapters. The group’s goal is to raise $175,000 to benefit the organization and raise awareness about the disease.

The group is making its way through Kentucky (Louisville June 19-21; Elizabethtown June 21-23) and will arrive in event in Bowling Green on June 23. A Bike4Alz fundraising event will be held from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. June 25 at Covington Woods Park.

During their ride through southern Indiana, the Bike4Alz group was honored with resolutions by the cities of Evansville and Newburgh and by U.S. Congressman Larry Bucshon, who represents Indiana’s 8th District.
