Welcome to my Personal Page
As a rider since 2002 and Executive Committee Member for the past few years, the ADA has become an important part of my world. I lost a childhood friend in 2015 who had dealt with diabetes for the majority of his life and, lost my Uncle in 2017, many friends, relatives are dealing with this every day and now am dealing with Type 2 Diabetes personally. My personal and professional connections have made me even more dedicated to this great cause and I believe that any effort, big or small, can help in the fight against diabetes. I am riding to help ensure that our children’s generation does not have to experience the difficulties Mike and Uncle Rich did. There is a way to beat this disease, and with your help, we can do it.
In 2019 the rate at which people are diagnosed with diabetes is accelerating and not declining. We need to do all we can to help eductate, prevent, and treat those dealing with the condition while working to find a cure. Medicines and technology have come a long way since I was a kid and even further faster in recent years with hard work and support from everyone in the community.
The majority of the funds raised locally stay in our area for research, prevention, support, and to fund the great ADA Camp ASPIRE for children with diabetes in Rush, New York. I appreciate anything you can do to help me with this year’s ride, which for the first time will be based out of downtown Niagara Falls, NY! Thank you.
SO MANY LIVES ARE TOUCHED BY DIABETES. CHANCES ARE YOUR LIFE IS TOO.
I’m committed to ride and raise money in this inspirational event not because 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because I personally know some of them, and want to do something about it. You can too, just by donating. It would mean the world to me.
No better time than now to support me in celebrating 27 years of continuous progress working to improve the lives of people with diabetes through research, advocacy and education.

I am forever grateful for your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
