Beaufort resident Charlie Frost has participated in A Ride to Remember for the past three years, and he’ll participate again this year. And he’s hoping you’ll join him.

A Ride to Remember (RTR) is an annual cycling event hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association. A fundraiser for Alzheimer’s research, it’s a three-day, 252-mile ride from Simpsonville to Charleston.

Frost was one of more than 500 cyclists in last year’s ride, all of whom were committed to helping others while having a great time. 

“Participating in the ride gives me an opportunity to do something I love – see beautiful South Carolina scenery, be with a community of wonderful people, and help a cause I feel strongly about,” said Frost, who has had several family members with Alzheimer’s and also knows others greatly affected by the disease. 

This year’s ride will take place July 9-11. Because of Covid, riders will also be able to participate virtually, using the entire month to log their miles.
