    Welcome to my JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes Page!

    (Note: Regardless of what you check off on the donation page, your name and donation amount will NOT be shown publicly - I turned that feature off.)

    Last year, my wife Cathy participated in the Burlington, VT, Ride to Cure, because our niece Samantha has type 1 diabetes. This year, she has recruited me and her brother Ken to participate. On Ken's fundraising page, he has a moving story about when his daughter was diagnosed. His page is here: http://tinyurl.com/JDRFKen

    And Cathy's page is here: http://jdrf3.convio.net/goto/cathyryan

    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. Click here to learn more about JDRF's amazing research to find a cure and better treatment options: http://jdrf.org/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. Please donate and help JDRF achieve its goal of a world without T1D.
