Welcome to A Red Riders Page
On my fiftieth birthday, I was informed that I had type 2 diabetes. It was a huge shock. I was a cyclist for many years, and think that was what kept it under control, but after not riding for a couple of years it took over. I've been battling this affliction for the last 6 years. Losing some weight has not done a lot, and changing how I live makes it difficult. I'm working harder to do that, but it's a huge battle. I have some family, friends and co-workers who are also afflicted by this disease. Help me make a change. Help me do that!
I am riding because the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure is so much more than a cycling event to me. It is my opportunity to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes.
I am committed to ride and raise $1,500 or more in this inspirational event not because 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because I personally have and know some of them, and I want to do something about it. Won't you help me start a chain reaction?
Chances are, you also know someone who has been affected by diabetes, and you already know how important it is to stop this disease. By making a donation on my behalf or by joining my team, you will be helping the Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.
With your help, we will fight for a future where a parent does not have to hear that their child has diabetes. A future where an adult does not have to face the uncertain times ahead after receiving a diabetes diagnosis. A future where you and I will know that we had a part in making this possible.
I truly appreciate your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
