Welcome to Andreia's Personal Page
PLEASE HELP ME STOP DIABETES!!
Here I am again…
In 2017 was a huge challenge to ride due to hot temperature, but I had a blast at Tour de Cure event. I rode 72 miles = 115.873Km and rose over a $1,000 dollars to the American Diabetes Association. I became a champion for the 1st time by raising this huge amount of money.
This year I will be challenging myself again as a Red Rider (a cyclist with diabetes) to go the distance, in this case 68 miles = 100Km +, on Sunday, June 10th, 2018.
As a diabetic myself for almost 14 years, I must continue raising awareness of this cruel disease. It's under control initially with medication, but now with food choices and exercise only. My friends brought me into this cycling world that I became addicted to riding. This cycling activity helps me to manage my disease in a fun way and I ride as much as I can.
Now - I am part of Team Red Chicago. It is a group of dedicated, fearless riders to raise awareness and make a difference, and my initial goal is to raise $500 and eventually more than $500. Every dollar raised in my name is going to help American Diabetes Association provide community-based education programs, protects the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure-changing future for those who have diabetes.
