Welcome to our JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes Chapter Page!
The Austin Ride Team has been riding for 3 years now, and growing strong!
Here's what some of our Riders have said -
“As a Type 1 Diabetic for almost 15 years now, I never thought I’d be able to do something like ride 100 miles across Vermont. But, with a lot of training and support from my family and friends, this goal became a reality for me and our awesome team! I made a lot of great friends along the way and it helped me stay motivated about a hope for a cure for myself and the millions of others affected by Type 1 Diabetes. What an incredible experience. Can’t wait to do it again in the future!” Emily Rhodes 2012
“As an active cyclist for many years I’ve been on a number of charity rides and I have to say this was a very different and amazing experience. Along the way training I met some amazing people who I call close friends now and together we not only accomplished a big ride in Vermont, but also raised a ton of awareness and money for T1D and JDRF. I can’t think of another event that gives as much for the effort in both helping a great cause and developing the people involved.” Todd Werner, 2012, 2013, 2014
We’re riding our bikes 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.
