Dear friends, family, and former colleagues!
This is a special year. I ride in honor of my grandson, Bailey, and celebrate my 70th birthday by supporting Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to turn type-1 diabetes into type-none!
Bailey is an active 17 year old high school junior. In addition to being an excellent student, he enjoys high school forensics, and plays a mean guitar.
Bailey was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes when he was 9 years old and has been monitoring his blood sugars and treating himself with Insulin since then.
Because I believe that, with sufficient funding for research, a cure for juvenile diabetes will be developed during Baileys lifetime, on August 16, 2014, I will be biking the 100 mile Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Ride to Cure Diabetes taking place in La Crosse WI. Also, because I feel so strongly about this cause, I will be riding an extra 50 miles for a total of 150 miles. Hundreds of riders from all over the nation will be joining together to raise money for the research supported by the JDRF to prevent, treat, and cure juvenile diabetes. JDRF is the world wide leader in supporting research directed toward curing and improving the treatment of juvenile diabetes.
Please help me blow the top off my fund raising goal of $5000.00 by making a generous contribution. A donation to this very worthy cause will be greatly appreciated and you can have the satisfaction of making a difference for millions of people with T1-D.
Simply push the blue Donate button at the top of the page and indicate how much you wish to give to support JDRF and help cure Juvenile Diabetes.
Thank you so much.
