"We are now back in an almost locked-down Antwerp after biking 967 km for Alzheimer's research! But this is not enough to stop the disease. We have to keep on biking (also for a sustainable way of living) and investing in research to find solutions. Let's not postpone actions and investments: we now experience the consequences of slow decision-making in handling the second covid-wave. Alzheimer's could be considered a slow epidemy as well and also here we need to flatten the curve to avoid a too high socio-economic burden and pressure on our health care system.
Thanks for supporting us in this sponsor challenge, and if you still want to engage, just click the link below or reach out to us via direct message!"
