Help To Make A Difference!

Hi everyone in blogger world! As my blog name states I have type 1 diabetes (the kind where you take shots of insulin multiple times a day) I know there is a lot of confusion over type 1 vs. type 2. To be honest I didn't know for the longest time when people asked! lol

As most of you also know I love to ride my bikes! So for the second year I've decided to ride in the Tour de Cure to help raise money to fight this disease and hopefully, one day, find a cure! Until that time I will keep fighting the good fight! I've decided to not take the easy way out and do the 62 mile "Champion" course which takes you in and out of the Cuyahoga Valley, a.k.a multiple short but crazy steep quad and lung burning climbs over 62 miles. :) Fun!

Please check out my page at the link below and feel free to donate and help me in this fight. I know times are tough these days and you can donate as little as a dollar or up to whatever you would like. I raised over $800 last year so I made my goal $1000 this year. Please help me reach this goal and make my small little mark and victory against the fastest growing disease in America right now! Thank you in advance for your tax-deductible donation or at least for checking out my page!!! :)
