Betten on Bike

“In January 2013 a very dear friend of ours, Evert Sarels Van Rijn, passed away as a result of Alzheimer’s disease and we were devastated. Walter had been in the midst of planning to cycle around Australia and on hearing the news of Evert’s death we decided to dedicate our trip to Evert. He had chosen to donate his body to research and we wanted to give our trip meaning and purpose so we decided to contact Alzheimer’s Australia to set up a fundraising campaign specifically to raise funds for research.
