Please support Billy Carlsen - JDRF Burlington Vermont Century Ride to Cure Diabetes

    Join me in the fight to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes!

    Hello! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Ride to Cure Diabetes, along with hundreds of other riders across the country to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D).  If you ask people with T1D, 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:

    • T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
    • T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
    • Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
    • Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?

    My ride this year is to support Bill Carlsen. Billy is a high-spirited, athletic, caring, rising 4th Grader who turned 9 in February 2014. He was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on his first day of school in 2012. He loves playing Lacrosse, Basketball, Baseball and Golf, as well as music and going to the beach with his sister (Grace). Billy tackled the disease “head-on”, immediately monitoring his glucose levels and giving himself his own insulin shots the first week home from the hospital. He enjoys educating his friends and family about the disease, and is proud to be a “Youth Ambassador” for helping educate and raise donations for a Diabetes research. 



    Thank you for your support!
