Donate to the Amazing Ride! The Cottages offer unique and engaging programs for those facing memory loss, as well as vital staff training, thanks to the generosity of donors like Judy Steffes. A local journalist, bike enthusiast and family member, Judy has embarked on three epic bike rides, logging more than 3000 miles and raising over $60,000 for Alzheimer's music and recreational programs at Cedar Community. Judy's parents, Joan and Al, live at Cedar Ridge Apartments and Judy spends significant time there with her dad, who has Alzheimer's disease.


Judy was nominated by Cedar Community and awarded the 2016 Exceptional Friend or Family Caregiver Award at the Third Annual Great Minds Gala presented by LeadingAge and Integrace in Washington, D.C. on March 14. The gala, a fundraising event held in conjunction with LeadingAge's PEAK Leadership Summit, was created to help improve the care offered to people with Alzheimer's disease and the support options available for their caregivers.

Judy will embark on another biking journey in June, 2016 from New Mexico to raise additional funds and awareness. To sponsor her ride or donate, call 262.338.2819 or VIEW PDF TO LEARN MORE.
