By placing an order through Schwans.com a portion of the sales will be donated to my Ride to Cure Diabetes!
I'm taking part in two rides this year... the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes at Saratoga NY and La Crosse Wi... because I know that my fundraising efforts will help improve the lives of millions of people living with type 1 diabetes (T1D).
These two rides will be my 16th and 17th ride. I will be joined with my son and daughter who both have T1D.
Did you know that T1D:
- Is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin – a hormone essential to turning food into energy.
- Strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle.
- Requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure – yet. But JDRF is working every day to change that.
Every dollar you donate to my Ride today will help JDRF continue to fund critical research that impacts the lives of millions of children, adults, and families affected by T1D.
With your support - through Schwans.com - we will create a world without T1D and turn Type One into Type None.
