My name is Jon Crowson. I first started racing bikes in 2005, and it has been part of my life ever since. I currently live in Knoxville, but have had the opportunity to live in various places across the country racing bikes. I met the Pedal for Pat crew through Nox Composites where I am the Operations Manager. I heard about the Pedal for Pat initiative and immediately wanted to get Nox Composites on board as a sponsor.

Once I met the Pedal for Pat crew, I began to think about the amount of my own family that has had to deal with Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Since I have been alive, every single woman on both sides of my family that has passed away has had Alzheimer’s. This fact has never really hit me until now. I also know that based on my families track record with Alzheimer’s, it’s going to continue to be an issue.

After some thought and prayer, I decided it is time to get involved with the Pedal for Pat and use my gifts and talent of riding bikes for something bigger than myself; for something that will potentially save my family from dealing with one of the most heart breaking diseases around.

Together We Will Win!
