Hello! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Ride to Cure Diabetes, along with hundreds of other riders across the country, as we try to reach our goal of raising $5 million.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children. This year, I will be riding on for Shelbie Bracha. Shelbie was diagnosed at age 4 with Type 1 diabetes! Shelbie has struggled with this disease since August 2004. Shelbie's mom has been a Hy-Vee employee for 8 years and is currently a Full-Time employee at our store.
There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
Now, more than ever, you can make a crucial difference. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
