They call it "dry heat". Imagine taking part in a 111 mile bicycle race around the perimeter of Tucson, Arizona with 12,000 friends in 100 degree heat and 30% humidity levels. I call it suffering....mixed with a lot of fun. This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Ride to Cure Diabetes in Tucson raising funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). 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 personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes. I have seen the devastating affects of T1D in my own family. My nephew, Ethan, was diagnosed a dozen years ago as a nine year old. That's twelve years of insulin shots (not a cure but a treatment), twelve years of numerous daily blood tests, twelve years of carefully monitoring every bit of food/drink that he consumes. It's a daily struggle.
Did you know that:
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Thank you for your support!
PS. See if you can find me in the video. (At 3:10 and ??? ) This ride will be my 7th ride for JDRF !!
I signed up for my 7th...or is it 8th?....JDRF Ride To Cure. $100 down....$5900 to go. It's hard to believe while I sit looking out my window at bare trees, 40 degree temps, and a few clumps of snow on the ground that I will ever be ready for a 111 mile bicycle race. But I'll be ready. thanks for the support!!
