My name is Ozge. I'm 24, graduated in 2011 and working as a Laboratory Analyst.
Fundraising is all new to me - it's not something I've done before - especially something of this scale..This is an opportunity to push myself to new levels where the idea alone is out of my comfort zone..
People have asked me what my story with Alzheimer's is... Fortunately, I don't have one. But it's something I find very scary and sad, not only for the person suffering with the disease but especially for the families affected by it. It's even more scary that there are no cures or ways of preventing this awful disease.
And it is for that reason I have decided to take on this challenge to raise money for Alzheimer's Research UK and help them in finding a cure! So if anyone we knew were to develop Alzheimer's, we'd know there would be a way to cure it or at least know how to prevent it!

Event Details

450km Cycle Challenge for Alzheimer's Research UK

A 450km cycle challenge through Vietnam in 10 days... to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer's Research UK.
Please be aware that some money goes towards expenses! But this contributes to local communities in Vietnam.
By taking part in this event, a contribution also goes to an SOS Children's Village in Nha Trang which I will get to visit to learn more about the orphans daily lives.
So Thank You so Much!! :)
