Welcome to my JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes Page!
As many of you may know I have been dealing with Type 1 Diabetes for a very long time. 33 years to be exact! Through out these many years I have seen many advancements made towards Type 1 Diabetes! Now I feel it is my turn to help continue the fight against this disease by raising money for research! My wish is of course to help find a cure but also I want others to see the advancements that are out there and have the hope that I do that one day Type one will be Type None!
I’m taking part in the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes, along with hundreds of riders from around the world, to raise money for JDRF, the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.
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.
