Join me in the fight to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes!
Hello! This year, I've been challenged by a former colleague to up my fundraising gosls for the JDRF by take part in JDRF's Ride to Cure Diabetes, in Tuscon in November. It's a one-day, 100 mile course and I've started training by bicycling 20 miles and 40 miles in April and May so far with a great group on Long Island (and New York City). Last week, I satrted practicing biking with 'clipless' pedals and shoes and onlt fell over three times when stopping with properly unclipping from one of the pedals.
My initial goal is to raise $6,000 from friends and family (I'm kicking in $1,000 to jump-start the process. Along with hundreds of other riders across the country, our goal of course is to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, including my son Chris, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Thank you for your support!
