Welcome to my JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes Page!
As many of you know, I like to challenge myself each year by participating in an endurance event for JDRF. Last year was my first marathon and this year, I'm going to ride 111 miles on Nov 22, 2014 in Tucson as part of the 9,000 rider Tour De Tucson. Additionally I'm riding with Hope on 2 Wheels on Jul 31. We are riding from Camp Nejeda in Stillwater NJ to Camp Possibilities in Havre de Grace, MD. Over the 200+ miles, we'll be raising awareness for JDRF and T1D...
We are very fortunate that we aren't directly impacted by Type One Diabetes in my family however we have many dear friends impacted by T1D and I ride for all of them!
Did you know that 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 have been hard at work training and fundraising, and your gift today will propel me toward the finish line. 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.
