Welcome to Kevin Rothman's Fundraising Page
As many of you know, I have been a Type 1 diabetic since I was 3 - over 22 years. I do not know a life without it. I was fortunate enough to have a strong support system (read: my family) to help shape me into the person I am today and achieve my full potential. However, not all diabetics have been as lucky as I. As the technology and treatment methods have grown and evolved since my diagnosis, the education around the disease has not.
On June 10th, I will be riding 100 miles to advocate for those less fortunate. I will be riding for the children who have to fight to get a 504 plan at their school; I will be riding for those who have to fight with their insurance company everyday to get adequate healthcare coverage to be able to wake up the next day; I will be riding for those who have experienced discrimination at work; I will be riding for the kids who don't know a life without shots or finger pricks; I will be riding for a cure.
In addition to the Tour de Cure ride, I pledge to ride 2,500 miles in 2018 to further increase awareness. If you would like to follow my progress, you can track me on my Strava account
With adequate research and funding, I believe one day we can cure diabetes. To help support my efforts, to make an impact, and to shape the future of the disease, please click on the Donate button. If you do not wish to donate but would like to support my cause, it would mean just as much to me if you share my story via your social media.
