Help Make a Difference in the Fight Against Diabetes!
Each mile I ride, and the funds I raise will be used in the fight to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. No matter how small or large, your generous gift will help improve the lives of nearly 30 million Americans who suffer from diabetes, in the hope that future generations can live in a world without this disease. Together, we can all make a difference!
Thank you for making a generous contribution to this cause that is so important to me!
Who I'll Be Thinking of When I Ride and Volunteer
On August 31st of 2010 I lost my best friend, my Dad Joe, who after many years of living with and fighting against Type 2 diabetes, passed away from a combination of physical complications. I know he would have lived longer had he not had to battle the effects of diabetes for so many years. Every time I finished a Tour de Cure the first call I made was to my Dad, and his first words were "well, how did you do?", because I always had set a goal for the ride so I could challenge myself. Now my first call is to my Mom, Joan, who also suffers from Type 2 diabetes, and I tell her how the ride went. She is a great supporter not only for me but for the fight against diabetes -- and she's a great example of how healthy living can help a person deal with the disease.
Yep, I myself was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2017 -- family genetics is something you can't ride your bike away from, even if you ride 4,000 miles a year......
My 2023 Tour de Cure Goal
This year my fundraising goal is $20,000, and while I'll be the only one pedaling my bike towards my riding goals, you can help me with my goal to support the fight against diabetes.
