Hello! My name is Andrew Brown. I'm 22 years old and in May
I graduated from college at the University
of Vermont. On
June 21st, I began biking across the country in
an event I call Coast to Coast: A Ride to Remember. The purpose
of the ride was to raise money for Alzheimer’s research
and to increase awareness for the disease. I have teamed up with
Association to organize this event and put the
money I raise to great use.
