LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Western Kentucky University students were in Louisville Saturday to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer’s disease.

Every other year, a group of students bike across the country, stopping in major cities along the route to collect donations.

In late May, the group left Seattle and their final destination will be Virginia Beach.

Once the trip is complete, the group will have biked more than 2,000 miles.

The group has 13 days left in its journey.

The bikers will also make a stop in Lexington.
