Join me AGAIN in turning Type One into Type None!

    Welcome to my JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes Page!  

     

     

    My journey started six years ago when my daughter, Ava, was diagnosed at four years old with T1D right after returning from Disneyland....on Halloween.  It was a crazy weekend as you can imagine, but since then the entire family has rallied around finding a cure.  I'm also T1D and this is my third Ride with JDRF and I'm proud to be part of an amazing team.  When I started the cycling team three years ago we had seven brave souls that ventured to Vermont and along the way we raised $30k for JDRF.  Last year the team was up to nine and over $40k raised and this year we are at 13...and still counting. Besided my daughter the team is the biggest inspiration for me and I learn and gain a ton from them.  Rally behind my fund raising goal or anyone on the team - just get active!  :)

     

     

    If you are interested in donating to me, send me an email at todd_werner@dell.com and I can match any donation dollar for dollar to make your impact even bigger! 

    Did you know T1D:

    - Strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. 

    - Occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. Insulin is essential to turning food into energy. 

     - Requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.

    JDRF is working every day to change this. And every dollar I raise helps them continue to bring life-changing therapies from the lab to the community until a cure is found. 

    I have been hard at work training and fundraising, and your gift today will propel me toward the finish line. Please donate and help JDRF achieve its goal of a world without T1D. 

    Please check back to view my fundraising progress as my Ride weekend approaches. Thank you for your support.
