A Meeting of 'MINDS' Motorcycle Tour
In September we set out on our charity tour in support of BRACE and for me …..
The tour was very much a Meeting of ‘MINDS’, as it “was a journey to a better understanding of Alzheimer’s.”
We spent time with Mark Poarch (CEO of BRACE) and got to understand his concerns and aspirations in his continual quest to raise funds for Dementia research. We also spent time with those at the ‘rock face’ of research, those trying to make a difference, which was a great privilege.
Attached are a ‘cerebral’ selection of interviews we undertook.
Finally, a very big thank you to the following people who have helped us with our charity tour.
Mark Poarch for resisting the pressure to get into the saddle and tour with us.
For BMW, GoPro and Ride the World Magazine, family and friends for social media support.
If you are interested in the scenery of the Alps then please have a look at some of the route we took
So the fight goes on, and we have only just scratched the surface with what we set out to achieve. But do look out for A Meeting of ‘MINDS’ tour 2016, as you never know!
So how can you help?
From now on, leading up to and during the tour we will be sending out information via email and social media. If we email 100 people, they then send information onto another 100 people, and so on and so on we then have the start of a great awareness campaign for BRACE and Alzheimer's. Maybe a few will donate, but the important thing is purely the awareness.
So in truth, really what we want is ‘take a message and pass it on.’
If you wanted to do this via social media, then you can follow us on:
We will also have updates via the ONA BLOG www.onaltd.co.uk/blog
One final thing, part of the research interview process will be to talk specifically about Alzheimer’s as a multi-dimensional condition. But we also wanted to create a generic bank of research questions. So if you ever had a question about Alzheimer’s now is your chance to ask, via me. So if you wanted to send this on, please do. If you wanted to follow us now on Twitter/ Facebook etc, please do. Or send us a question, please do to firstname.lastname@example.org. Wish us well on our journey, and thanking you in advance for helping to PASS THIS ON.
And if you have a motorcycle and want to come along, please do.
