* THROWBACK ALERT*
That photo was taken at my first JDRF Ride to Cure, right after I completed my first 100 (actually, 105) mile ride in Death Valley. That was back in 2006.
I'm doing my 13th ride, back where it all started.
I'm raising $5,500+ for JDRF because type 1 diabetes is awful and no one should have to deal with it.
I'm raising the money because I know JDRF is one of the most efficient charities around, and our work goes FAR. I've seen real, tangible improvements in care and leaps toward a cure, since committing to this event 14 years ago.
I'm raising the money for the too-many people in my life who live with and worry about t1d every single day.
Type 1 diabetes:
- Can't be prevented.
- Has no cure. Yet.
- Is really, really expensive.
Thank you for your support. Every dollar matters.
