This year, I'll be taking part in the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes, along with hundreds of others nationwide. Our goal: to raise $5 million to fund research for better treatments and a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications.

I'm asking you to help support my fundraising efforts with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift will help make a difference in the lives of people with type 1 diabetes.

It is faster and easier than ever to donate. Simply click on the link below at the bottom of this message to donate online. If you prefer, you can mail your gift check to me.  Just send me a note and I will give you the address.

Any amount, great or small, helps JDRF get closer to its goal of finding better treatments and a cure for type 1 diabetes. I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.

  1. Enjoy the ride! I'll be doing Tour de Cure next weekend which supports the American Diabetes Association.

  2. That is great. I was scheduled to do a Tour De Cure ride as well, but unfortunately I had something else that weekend. A couple of my fellow riders did the ride. It was 200 miles over 2 days. They really enjoyed it. Death Valley is an awesome ride and I am really looking forward to it.
