Join me in turning Type One into Type None!

Riding to cure diabetes!

     

     

     

     

    On September 7th, I will be riding 70+ miles around Lake Tahoe in California and Nevada with hundreds of other people from around the world to help cure diabetes. On the 8th, I will mark the 15th "diaversary" of my diabetes diagnosis. It's hard to believe that it's been that long already! I've seen a lot of things change about diabetes in that time, and JDRF has played a large part in many of those changes.

     

    I’m taking part in the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes to raise money for JDRF, the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. I've set an ambitious goal to raise $7,500 this year for diabetes research, and I need your 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. 

    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.
