Welcome to the Team Kasper JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes Page!
Scott, Doug, Paul and Jake (along with out SAG crew of Bunny and Mike) will once again use our bicycles to pedal 100 miles closer to the cure for Type 1 Diabetes. Last year Jake, at the age of 13, completed his very first JDRF Ride to Cure and his very first 100-mile bike ride, and he hopes to conquer yet another 100 miles this year in Saratoga Springs.
We ride every year because life with T1D is more challenging that you can ever imagine. The members of our family who live with T1D (Jake, Matt, Bunny, Anne and Zachary) face life and death challenges every single day. The tribulation, the fear, the difficulty, the challenges, the setbacks, the high's and the low's all need to end, and we know that JDRF will lead the way down the path to that end!!
Last year it was Jake's idea that we raise $10 for every day that he had lived with T1D on the day of his ride. With your help, we surpassed that goal and raised more than $52,000!!
This year brings another milestone to Team Kasper. Coach Scott turns 50!!! Therefore, we would like to set our goal of raising $1,000 for each of those 50 years and set a goal of raising $50,000 for JDRF to help create a world without T1D!!!
Scott has asked that anyone who would be inclined to give him a 50th birthday present, please do so by making a donation here!!!
With your support, we will create a world without T1D and turn Type One into Type None. Thank you.
