Please support Caruso's Ride for the Cure!

    Welcome to the 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 have become an avid cyclist and I want to put my riding to good work for a CURE to Type One Diabetes which both my daughter and I have.  Juliana is my ultimate inspiration.

    This past year Juliana was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes.   It pains me deeply that she now has to deal with something I've had since 11 years old.  She's doing her best to adjust and she's always an optimist.  But she asked me if I will do all I can to help her, millions of other children, and for other adults with Type One to find a cure through JDRF.  My answer was YES.  I'm doing it and will stop at nothing for a cure. So before I grow old and tired, we will have success.  We're riding to fund critical research to cure this disease.  

    Will you help?

    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. 

    Will you support us?

    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. My team is trying to raise $3,500 toward the cure!  

    Thank you for anything you can offer!
