What Does Cooking, Motor Biking & Dementia
Have In Common?
Not A Clue? Read On!
Today, I am writing to tell you about Daniel and Emanuel, who are doing something amazing to raise money for Alzheimer’s Disease International.
Daniel and Emanuel are professional chefs that will embark on a sponsored 5,500km motorcycle ride from Argentina to Peru. The 6 week trip starts today will see them negotiate the feet of the Andes as well as the Americas tallest peak, the Aconcagua.
Daniel and Emanuel plan to cook their way along the route while raising awareness of Alzheimer’s disease. When Daniel’s mother, Emanuel’s grandmother, was diagnosed with the condition, they said family and friends found her memory loss hardest to adjust to. Daniel reflects, “Don’t you remember, I told you so, were usual words that hit her the hardest.” The pair chose ADI as their charity because they wanted to help people in low and middle income countries across the world.
The duo will set off from Buenos Aires on the 10 January, traveling along the feet of the Andes 1,000km west of the city. They will then negotiate the path into Chile which stands at over 3,000 meters high. Arriving in Santiago they will head west to the pacific and then north towards their final destinations, Lima and Cusco in Peru.
