Hi I´m Kristian And I´m about to bike approxemitly 40.000 kilometers around the world, and this is why......

I had a job that did not give much joy. I felt stuck in a bureaucratic and formal organization. Like many of us I had a dream. The dream that I was thinking about while waiting for a bus or running to catch the metro. My dream is to take myself around the globe on a bicycle.

This was also a oppertunity to do somthing great for those who need it the most. My trip has the ambition and goal to raise funds for dementia and Alzheimer research which is currently heavily underfunded in relation to its social costs and impact for millions of elderly people and their families around the world. I collaborate with Dementia Forum the Swedish Alzheimer Foundation and their respective partners to collect funds for research and, also to raise awareness about dementia diseases. My goal is to raise 50 000 EUR (approx. 57 000 USD).

Dementia is one of the toughest challenges today. More than 47 million people are affected by dementia, a syndrome caused by physical changes in the brain that severely affects memory and other mental abilities. This number is expected to double by 2030 and reach beyond 130 million people by 2050. Unfortunately, there is still no cure or disease modifying medication. Furthermore, by the year 2050, the number of people affected is estimated to have tripled.


Please help me reach my goals, for a better world. You are more then welcome to follow me at Bike for dementia.

    Alla mår vi bra av att få vara ute – i en trädgård, i ett växthus, i en park eller i skogen. Forskningen visar att utemiljön vid äldreboenden har stor betydelse för de äldres hälsa och välbefinnande. Lycka till Kristian med ditt projekt.
