Team Fish will be spanning the entire country in 2018 as we continue to ride our bikes to raise awareness and money towards better treatments and an eventual cure for Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). Fishman, Fishlegs, Brifische, Flounder, Hopalong, Mikerel and Hammerhead, will all be taking on the road again in La Crosse, Wisconsin for a three-state ride through Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa. Fishman and Fishlegs will be coaching in Saratoga Springs, NY in September, and then five of us, along with our newest teammate (Maddoc) will be in Death Valley (yes, Death Valley) in October to commune with the coyotes, the cactus and the sun.
Over the last five years Team Fish has raised more than $200,000, all of which has gone towards supporting the efforts of JDRF during the most exciting time ever in T1D research and treatment. It has been so exciting to see really progress and changes being made, due in no small part to the funds generated through the ride program.
Donations can be made by clicking the "DONATE TO TEAM" button above, or by sending a check payable to "JDRF" to TeamFish, 30 Realty Drive, Cheshire, CT 06410. Thanks to the literally hundreds of people that have supported our previous rides, and thanks in advance for any support you can provide during the 2017 season. We're honored and humbled for the amazing support we've received since becoming involved with JDRF's Ride program.
Type 1 Diabetes has been an unwelcome partner in our lives for a long, long time. It feels good to know we're helping create a world without T1D and turning Type One into Type None.
