I love to compete, usually in the form of running. This spring I’m doing something totally different. I’m cycling and it’s NOT a race. One of the co-founders of the Baltimore digital agency where I work, r2i, is on the board of the ADA Maryland chapter and his son suffers from type I diabetes which is an auto-immune disease in which the pancreas does not produce insulin. He has rallied a team in our office to ride in the Tour de Cure.
So, on May 3 I will be riding somewhere in the neighborhood of 22-36 miles for FUN to show my support of the ADA’s efforts to advocate, support and find a cure for the more than 26 million people in the US who have diabetes.
Part of the responsibility of being on the team is of course fundraising. If you or someone you know is affected by diabetes, can you please consider making a donation and/or if you’re local to Howard County Maryland, consider joining my team? The easiest donation is $26 which represents those 26 million people living in the US with diabetes. My total goal is $500 so a little bit will go a long way!
Thank you in advance for any donation you can make and for sharing this with others who may be willing to contribute.
