2018 Manning & Napier Tour de Cure

T1D Road Warriors

Welcome to our team fundraising page for the T1D Road Warriors, riding to support those living with diabetes, those living with those of us who have diabetes (and I'm sure at times that can be quite challenging) and those who didn't survive their journey with diabetes :-(

I am asking you to support me and my incredible team in the Tour de Cure® because finding a cure for diabetes means so much to us.

As you may (or may not) know, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and I want to ride to inspire, encourage and motivate....I've lived a lot of life since my diagnosis.  Bike riding, hiking and experiencing the great outdoors have kept me grounded and focused on everything I can do instead of all the things that make it challenging in living with T1D. 

I joined the Tour de Cure because today alone over 4,100 people will be diagnosed and because more than 30 million adults and children in the United States are living with diabetes (only appx. 5% of diabetics are type 1 so I like to think of us (type 1 diabetics) as "one in a million" :-)

Here's a little info about how Type 1 vs. Type 2:
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas are mistakenly destroyed by the body’s immune system. T1D seems to have a genetic component and can be diagnosed early in life but also in adulthood. Its causes are not fully known, and there is currently no cure. People with T1D are dependent on injected or pumped insulin to survive. Once a person has type 1 diabetes, it does not go away and requires lifelong treatment. People with type 1 diabetes depend on testing their blood sugars throughout the day, daily insulin injections or an insulin pump to control their blood sugar.

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is often diagnosed later in life and can be due to genetic predisposition or behavior. T2D is a metabolic disorder in which a person’s body still produces insulin but is unable to use it effectively. It can be managed with diet and exercise or medication. More serious cases may require insulin therapy.
As you can see, although they share the name diabetes, the two diseases are quite different but we are all one family....

Please Help Us Reach (and hopefully exceed) Our Goal! When you donate:

  • You spread awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes.
  • You advocate for a child discriminated against in school because of diabetes.'
  • You fund life-saving research.
  • You provide access to community programs and free resources that help those living with diabetes

By participating in the Tour de Cure this year, I hope to inspire others to join me and raise money. Thank you for making a generous donation to this cause that is so important to me.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

xoxo Leslie (the T1D), Todd & Colin...Team T1D Road Warriors

Our Team is Making a difference. You can too!


Our team is supporting the American Diabetes Association because we want to make a difference.  We want to lead.  We want to inspire.  We want to empower. We want a cure!

We are teaming up now to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes. We are committed to participate together and raise money through this inspirational event not just because over 30 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because so many of us personally know some of them, and want to do something about it.

By making a donation or joining our 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.

When we bring together dedicated team members and generous donors, the power we have as a group far outweighs what any of us could do alone.

We are determined to reach our team goal, one person at a time. So let's make a difference together!
