It is that time of year again, readers!!
Why am I riding?
For my community and the many neighbors, friends, and consumers that I work with every day that deal with Type I and Type II diabetes. I have been personally touched by diabetes – having loved ones who’s diabetes has lead to serious medical conditions including heart attacks and heart surgery. I thought to myself, what if I could work towards preventing this? Community education and prevention is close to my heart, no matter the topic. I want the people around me that I love and care about to be able to live happy and healthy lives and know how to take care of themselves. These are the people I am riding for!
What’s my goal & Where does your donation go?
I’m trying to fundraise at least $750 (thats right!) for the American Diabetes Association! Donations go towards:
- Funding research for a cure
- Community-based programs education programs
- Diabetes prevention information
- Advocacy for those living with diabetes
- Public awareness events
Go here to my Personal Page and Click “Donate Now” to make a donation of ANY amount for my ride! Even $10 makes a difference!!! You can make a donation by credit card or paypal. If you’d like to send a check made out to the American Diabetes Association instead, please let me know!
