Dear Family and Friends:
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.
What is Type 1 Diabetes?
- 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.
Why do I ride ?
Why do I serve as a JDRF Ride Coach ?
Why do I serve as a Research Information Volunteer?
JDRF Research News ~ some highlights from 2014:
It is difficult asking friends and family for donations. I believe in this organization and I am proud to support their efforts to find a cure for this life-threatening disease!
I thank you for your support!
