Welcome to my JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes Page!
If you've made it this far, you know why I'm riding. So far this year, I've pedaled just over 2,600 miles training for this ride. I know I can't hang with Big George and TeeJay, but I'm not going to embarrass myself either! Click on the "Hincapie Gran Fondo" link for an idea about what I'm in for. Some JDRF info below-
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.
Thanks so much!
