Welcome to my
JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes Page!
I'm taking part
in the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes because I’m up for a physical and mental
challenge that I know will be the experience of a lifetime. And, the money I
raise will change the lives of millions of people who struggle with the burden
of type 1 diabetes (T1D) every day.
Did you know T1D:
- Is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin – the hormone that controls blood sugar levels
- Strikes children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle
- Requires constant carb counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin
a constant balancing act that results in stress and sleepless nights
There is no way
to prevent T1D and there is no cure – yet. But JDRF is working hard to change
you donate today funds research for breakthroughs to help everyone with T1D
live healthier and longer, until this disease no longer exists.
With your support, we will turn Type One into Type None.
