Help Make a Difference in the fight against diabetes!
The funds that I raise will be used in the fight to prevent diabetes and improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
No matter how small or large, your generous gift will help improve the lives of nearly 24 million Americans who suffer from diabetes, in the hope that future generations can live in a world without this disease. Together, we can all make a difference!
How YOU can Help ME in My 2013 Tour de Cure Challenge!
I'm doing the long 120 km course with over 5000 feet of climb. Training for that has helped me to lose a considerable amount of weight so that I'm now less than 5 pounds over the maximum recommended for my height. With my daily bicycle commutes and longer training rides on the weekends, I hope to be below the max allowd for my height by the time of this tour. It already feels great and it's exciting to be lighter than I've ever been over the last 25 years.
Thank you for making a generous contribution to this cause that is so important to me!
It's exciting to see more and more donations made in my name. Since the donations started coming in, I've lost the anxiety I previously had about bicycling the long course and just feel excitement about doing it. I'm fully commited to doing this ride and I can hardly wait to do it. It's also a lot of fun training with my friends--if you are up for a training ride sometime, let me know.
