Join me in turning Type One into Type None!

Sarah and me

    Welcome to my JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes Page!  

    I’m taking part in the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes, along with hundreds of riders from around the world, to raise money for JDRF, the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.  I will be participating in the Burlington Vermont ride which takes place on July 26th.  I will be riding in honor of my daughter, Sarah Diamond, who was diagnosed with T1D six years ago, just after turning 12-years old.

    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've been hard at work training and fundraising, and your gift today means so much to my family and all other families who have to deal with this devastating disease. 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.
