Tom and Rowan's Joint Fundraising Page

Mile 27 JDRF 2013
First Ride of 2014!!

    Hello!

    Tom and I are taking part in the Burlington Vermont Ride to Cure Diabetes again this summer - July 26th!  We are hoping to fundraise $4,000.00 together and would love your support.  Any amount will help, and we thought including this on our registry would be a great way to have an even bigger impact this year as we support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to help find a cure for Type 1 diabetes.  You can make your donation here and it will count towards our joint goal.  

    T1 diabetes can come on suddenly and can strike both children and adults at any time.  It has nothing to do with diet and lifestyle.  You probably know someone who is living with T1 diabetes or will know someone who is affected by it at some point in your lifetime.

    We'll be sending out regular email updates on our training (and will share personal stories at the wedding) along with pictures.  Of course, if anyone is interested in signing up or joining us on training rides, please get in touch! We'd love to host you at Lake George and/or see you in Vermont for the ride!  

    Thank you!

    Bike Riding in Tuscany
    Dear Friends & Family -
    We had the most wonderful wedding weekend and thank you all for sharing in our joy and a special thank you to those who were able to join us in Lake George!
    We have met our fundraising goal - so exciting!!! Thank you for your extreme generosity!!
    We jetted off to Italy for our honeymoon and visited the Piedmont area (southwest of Milan), Cinque Terre, Florence, and Tuscany. What a beautiful country! We had an amazing week and had some of the best food and wine we've ever had! The last day we met up with one of Rowan's friends who leads bike trips in Italy (http://www.duvine.com) and he took us on a rolling 15 mile ride through Tuscany, up to the small town of Lucignano for gelato before a quick descent back to his farmhouse for a wonderful dinner!!
    We'll try to upload some pictures from the ride - it was a gorgeous sunset and we passed by fields of early sunflowers!!
    Thank you all for your support. We're excited to dig into training now that we are back stateside.
    Love, Rowan & Tom

    Just Like Riding a Bike.....
    Tom and I completed our first ride of the season/2014, which doubled as our first ride together since last year's JDRF Burlington Ride! We did a leisurely 14.5 miler through the local farmlands which reminded us of how pretty the Bordentown/Chesterfield area is! We also scoped out some For Sale houses - there are some beautiful old farm houses out there for sale! We both felt pretty good and aren't too sore today.
    We plan to fit in another ride this week, and will slowly build out our mileage!
    Thanks for reading!
