    Welcome to my JDRF Ride to Cure Page!

    2014 is the sixth year that I've made the commitment to raise funds for Type 1 Diabetes research.  In past years, I've ridden in Asheville, NC, Burlington, VT, Lake Tahoe, CA, Nashville, TN, and Tucson, AZ.  Many of you have helped me raise over $13,000 for JDRF already through these rides.  Thank you!

    This year, I'm taking on a new challenge in Death Valley, CA. and I'm committed to raising at least $4000.  Any donation you make goes directly to JDRF, who uses the money responsibly to fund Type one Diabetes research.

    I'm passionate about finding a cure for all types of diabetes, and do hope to help influence a way to find a cure.  In addition to time spent on my bike, some of the most productive portions of my career at J&J have been dedicated to understading and creating treatments for diabetes. 

    I sincerely thank you for your support, and encourage you to join the fight.

    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. 

    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.
