Steel Hearts is helping to create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D) for the millions of children and adults living with this horrible disease.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children as well as adults—and has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. With T1D, a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin (the hormone essential to turning food into energy). A day in the life of someone with T1D includes multiple insulin injections, multiple finger pricks for blood glucose testing and monitoring, a careful balancing act between eating, any and all activity, and of course more glucose monitoring and insulin injections. There are the emotional challenges too. Constantly worrying if you're going to go low and crash (extremely dangerous), or go high and develop kidney failure. You lay awake in bed some nights wishing for a tomorrow where this daily struggle doesn’t exist.
There are no days off with T1D. There is no cure. But there is hope.
By joining with Steel Hearts and donating generously to JDRF today, you’ll help fund life changing breakthroughs to make living with T1D safer and healthier, until there is a cure. We can’t do it without you!
Steel Hearts is about family, strength, and determination. We are one family, strong in our goal, determined to find a cure for Juvenile Diabetes (aka Type One Diabetes / T1D). If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with T1D, if this disease somehow affects you, or if you simply want to help us fight this life changing disease, if you have a "STEEL HEART", we invite you to join us and RALLY FOR A CURE.
Join us on a beautiful 70 mile motorcycle run and more!
The Steel Heart Motorcycle Rally takes place once a year, typically the 2nd weekend in July. We anticipate hundreds of bikes to be part of this amazing event, but It doesn't end after the ride. The the end of the ride is where the party begins. After all, the thought of a possible cure for T1D is a great reason to celebrate. This celebration will include ambassadors from JDRF. They're every day kids, living every day lives despite this disease. They will talk openly about what it means to live with T1D and educate us all. This rally is as much about awareness as it is about raising money. The party includes…
- Great Food and Drinks
- Raffles & Auctions
- The Steel Heart Harley Davidson Motorcycle
- Riding Gear and Motorcycle Wears for sale
- T1D Education and Awareness Information
