Welcome to My Personal Page

This year marks the seventh that I ask my friends to join me in raising research funds for a cure to diabetes. The total from my previous seven rides in six years stands at $61,781. We are having an impact..

When I began this campaign, I vowed I would ride a fundraising bike for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation until the cure is found. I'm hoping the scientists hurry. I'm getting old. This year I plan to ride 100 miles in Burlington, Vermont on July 14th.

My total last year was a little over $12K, making us the fifth highest fundraising team of the 300+ riders at the Wisconsin ride. I would like 2012 to be a replay. Think of a donation as a helping hand to all those you know with diabetes. I am guessing there are several. As always, you can be sure that 100% of your donation goes directly to research. I don?t do this for a biking weekend. I pay my own way and make a sizable donation as well, last year $1500.  

There are two ways to make a tax-deductible donation to the JDRF ride account. If you choose to donate by mail, please contact me at hester@ti.com for a donor form. If you choose to donate via credit card just click the DONATE button on this page. Whichever you choose, THANK YOU for your support!

Sincerely,  

Richard
