I’m a type 1 diabetic (T1D) and this year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Ride to Cure Diabetes. A 103 mile long physical and mental journey through the lowest, hottest, driest location in the western hemisphere.
Why I ride….
Because I can!! T1D is a lifestyle and not a disease. I’m fortunate that I don’t believe in limits. This is the mind-set I want to share with all my fellow T1D’s. While it’s not our choice to be a T1D, we choose if it limits our lives.
If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered.
Many thanks goes out to my wife and 3 kids allowing me to challenge myself daily and for accepting that diabetes doesn’t have me but I have diabetes.
Thank you for your support!
