WHY DO WE FIGHT ?

ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) is short for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. ALS affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Eventually, patients cannot control their muscles. They become paralyzed. Most patients will die within five years after after diagnosis. My mother was also diagnosed with this incurable disease. Therefore, it is a very personal concern for me to advance the research of ALS. Only together, we can accelerate ALS research. Please support us with your donation.

At the moment we support the financing of a research study at the DZNE e.V. (German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases). The study is on „Cognition in ALS correlated with metabolic activity as measured by FDG-PET: a longitudinal study“.The study is supervised by Prof. Dr. Prudlo and his team. Over a period of three years the study will examine ALS patients for their higher brain functions (cognition) and their behavior.

The donations that are generated through this campaign go entirely to the ALS research. In addition to his work for DZNE e.V., Prof. Dr. Prudlo works as a senior physician at the Neurological Clinic of the University of Rostock and treats my mother and other ALS patients there. If you wan to know more about the work of Prof. Dr. Prudlo and his colleagues, please check out the website of DZNE e.V..

THAT WAS THE PAST ZWIFT CHARITY RIDE

On this uniqueZWIFT Charity Tour on 12.11.2017 cyclists from all over the world went to the virtual start to raise money for the ALS research. This was our team of professional team mates who were there as guides in each group.
