Type 1 Challenge 2020

My Story

I’m cycling 1000km (621.371 Miles for those of you in the US) over 6 days in the 2020 Type 1 Challenge to turn type one into type none! 

I have lived with T1D for the past quarter-century and won't let it stop me. I chose this because when I signed up for my first JDRF ride in Death Valley, CA I had no idea how I'd do it. This is the next challenge. Those of you that know me, know I love to ride and the JDRF is an organization that I truly believe in!

So I’m fundraising for JDRF on the #type1challenge to raise funds for research to cure, prevent and better treat type 1 diabetes.

Please DONATE NOW and support my ride to change the lives of those of us living with T1D.

Thank you!
