Ride to Cure

I think it is safe to say that we all know someone with diabetes. But what do you know about Juvenile Diabetes? Juvenile diabetes is otherwise known as Type 1 diabetes. Currently there is no cure for this type of diabetes. Juvenile diabetes comes on suddenly and causes dependence on injected or pumped insulin for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications.

Type 1 diabetes must be constantly monitored, there is not a day that goes by that a child with Type 1 diabetes and the parent of the child don't have to deal with it. 

As the leader of the T1D community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat, and prevent T1D.  In this role, JDRF has funded more than $1.6 billion in diabetes research since its founding in 1970, and has meaningfully advanced the T1D scientific frontier and the management of this disease.

Once again this year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Ride to Cure Diabetes, along with hundreds of other riders across the country, as we try to reach our goal of raising millions of dollars.

Now, more than ever, you can make a crucial difference. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
