Local business to host 350 Miles of Hope Ride for a Cure
Jim Coughlin and Wendy Nowokunski, the co-founders of Northbridge Companies, will take part in the 350 Miles of Hope Ride for a Cure fundraiser held July 7-14 to benefit Cure Alzheimer’s Fund. Along with other riders, they will pedal 350 miles from Brunswick, Maine to Plymouth, Massachusetts and will stop in every city and town with a Northbridge Care facility, including Milford, N.H., in pursuit of finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. More information on the ride can be found at the company’s Crowdrise page, www.crowdrise.com/ride-for-a-cure.
As a senior living center, the many Northbridge Communities in New England come face to face with families coping with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The company believes they have the ability to help make a change in the lives of their clients by supporting organizations seeking effective treatments and strategies for Alzheimer’s prevention.
This summer, Northbridge Companies will continue their support by hosting the 350 Miles of Hope Ride for a Cure to benefit Cure Alzheimer’s Fund, a nonprofit based in Wellesley Hills, Mass., dedicated to funding the most promising research to prevent, slow or reverse Alzheimer’s disease. Cure Alzheimer’s Fund has provided financial support for over 160 grants to 105 scientists around the world and the projects have resulted in many significant breakthroughs in the understanding of the pathologies and causes of the disease.
