May 2022 will be remembered for the participation of 4 of our colleagues in the Titan Desert extreme cycling race. Albert Roda, Christian Garcia, Eloi Valenzuela and Tristam Knoph took part in the competition under the slogan #PEDALEANDOxALZHEIMER, in order to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and the need to train memory throughout life to preserve cognitive health and prevent this type of neurodegenerative diseases.
For 7 days they cycled through the desert of Morocco along more than 600 km and almost 6,000 m of accumulated altitude. A not inconsiderable feat due to the psychological difficulty, the hardness of the terrain and the need for navigation and orientation skills, as well as physical preparation.
The initiative has raised an amount of 4,950 euros, exceeding expectations, and have been donated to the Rosa M. Vivar Foundation to contribute with their ongoing projects related to Alzheimer’s and cognitive health.
