Welcome to my JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes Page!
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.
So why ride 100 miles? Because of children like Kayla Kujkowski, a 3rd grader from Fairview, PA, my home town. Kayla wants to enjoy life like her friends do without having to test blood sugars 8-10 times a day and inject herself with insulin everytime she puts a piece of food in her mouth. She wants to have play dates with her friends, eat a piece of cake, play sports and not have to worry if her blood sugars are going too low and she might pass out.
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.
