Hello! I am asking for your support for a very special cause. I have decided to join my 82 year-old grandmother, Mary Brown, in October on her annual Death Valley Ride to Cure Diabetes. She has been doing the ride since 1999! The event benefits the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the body?s immune system attacks & destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. T1D strikes children & adults, causes dependence on injected or pumped insulin for life & carries the constant threat of devastating complications.
The Death Valley ride is 100 miles long. Riders from around the world take on two challenges: raising the money needed to fund research for better treatments & a cure for diabetes & reaching a personal training goal to prepare for a destination cycling experience.
As a rider, I am committed to fundraise a minimum of $4,000.00 & in exchange JDRF provides me with support & coaching during the months leading up to as well as throughout the JDRF Ride weekend.
I'm asking you to help support my fundraising efforts with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift will help make a difference in the lives of people with T1D.
Any amount, great or small, helps JDRF get closer to its goal to improve the lives of every person affected by T1D by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, & preventing T1D. I look forward to sharing in this amazing experience with my grandmother & I greatly appreciate your support & will keep you posted on my progress.
