Why I Ride...
Back in 2006, my lovely wife Sharon was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. For a short time our world was turned upside down. Thanks to the tremendous advancements made in diabetes treatment over the last decade, this once life, limb and organ threatening disease has turned out to be little more than a daily inconvenience [for me that is ;-) ].
While the diagnosis was a devastating, life-altering event it also had a very positive impact on our lifestyle because it improved our eating habits and was responsible for getting us back into the sport of bicycling and we've been putting on the miles ever since! That's why, on Sunday, March 29th, I will be putting my endurance to the test in order to raise much needed funds for the American Diabetes Association. This will be my 13th consecutive year riding in the Orlando Tour de Cure. I will be riding 101 miles that day and each dollar I raise in the process will be used in the fight to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by this potentially devastating disease that is becoming such an epidemic.
Help Make a Difference!
No matter how large or small, your generous gift will help improve the lives of more than 30 million Americans who suffer from diabetes. With continued research there's hope that future generations can live in a world without this disease. Together, we can all make a difference!
Thank you for making a generous contribution to a cause that is so important to me! Together, our efforts will help set the pace in the fight against diabetes.
So let's get in gear and bike to beat Diabetes!
