Welcome to our team’s JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes Page!
This year, our team is participating in JDRF Ride events across the country and locally. You can join a JDRF Destination Ride, choose your own ride or create your own challenge! There are so many ways you can get creative with your riding and fundraising efforts and we’re here for you every step of the way to help you cross the finish line.
T1D occurs when a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. Managing the disease is a constant struggle that involves monitoring your blood-sugar level, administering insulin, and carefully balancing these insulin doses with eating and activity. Even with a strict regimen, people with T1D may still experience dangerously high or low blood-glucose levels that can, in extreme cases, be life threatening. With T1D there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope. By joining our team, you will help JDRF continue to fund critical research that impacts the lives of millions of children, adults, and families affected by T1D. And, you’ll have a great time doing it!
