Hello again! This year, I will participate in my 8th Ride to Cure Diabetes, along with hundreds of other riders across the country, as we try to reach our goal of raising $5 million for JDRF.

Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children. I was diagnosed when I was four, and my family and I have been fighting for a cure ever since.

This year, my fiance Matt will once again join me on the course, as we ride 100 miles together in Burlington, Vermont. We are also getting married this fall, so 2012 is even more special! I feel so lucky to have such a caring, giving, and handsome(!) riding partner. 

As you can see in the video here, Matt and I are raising money to find a cure for diabetes. We believe that JDRF is our best hope to fulfill that mission. 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!

Thank you for your support!
