Join me in the fight against diabetes

Cameron is the reason I ride

    My son Cameron was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on March 17, 2008.  For the last 6 years, diabetes has been his constant companion.  It has gone with him to school, accompanied him on vacations, and pestered him while he slept.  Every meal, every sport, and every sickness – they are all affected by the presence of diabetes.

    While diabetes is a manageable disease, it is certainly not easy, and it threatens his life every day. When he was younger, he used to pray for “the smart men to find a cure.”  As we discovered that “the smart men” needed funding, we have dedicated some time every year to raise money to fight this disease.  It’s never much, but we believe it helps.  This year I am undertaking my most ambitious goal yet:  to raise $3,000 and ride to cure diabetes.

    The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation has played a pivotal role in the advancement of diabetes research, including funding most major scientific breakthroughs in the field since it was founded in 1970. These innovations have dramatically improved the quality of life for people with diabetes; and because of the JDRF, Cameron has the chance to live better and stronger.

    Please join us in this fight! Each mile we ride and each dollar we raise is one big leap forward towards better treatments and a cure for diabetes. We're getting closer, and I am never giving up. Any amount you are able to give is greatly appreciated and every dollar helps.
