I'm excited to share that this summer I'll be heading back to Burlington, VT to participate in my 4th annual JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes, along with hundreds of other riders from around the world to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D).
The Ride to Cure Diabetes is about more than the miles. There is more emotion, dedication, and perseverance during Ride Weekend than anywhere else I have seen. You witness hundreds of people get on a bike, fundraise their hearts out and cross the finish line with a level of accomplishment far exceeding what they ever thought was possible. Some of our riders have T1D, and some have no connection to the disease at all. But every rider out there becomes your family, and every mile you pedal together is really making a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease. It's a powerful thing knowing that you are a part of something bigger than yourself. That is what the Ride to Cure is.
This year my goal is to raise $2,000 for JDRF by Ride day (July 27th), and I can't do it without your support. If you're able to make a donation, you can do so by clicking the "Donate to Lindsay" tab on this page. No donation is too small, and every dollar really does count and will help me reach my goal.
Please feel free to contact me directly with any donation or JDRF related questions you might have (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can also follow the JDRF Ride on Facebook to stay on top of the latest updates, events, and information!
Thank you for always supporting me and JDRF. I can't WAIT to tell you about my Ride!
