Welcome to my Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund ODRAM fundraising page! 
 

Friends hello again! Our daughter, Mamie (Mary), was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes two and a half years ago. Last year, I was finally able to participate in the ODRAM. It was such a gratifying experience.  The feeling of crossing that long ride to raise money for JDRF is something I will never forget. I am once again committed to the One Day Ride Across Michigan (ODRAM) to raise funds for JDRF. THANK YOU to those of you who supported this cause last year  it means the world to us and especially Mamie (Mary).  Thanks to you all we were able to raise $2550.00!

All funds donated to support my ride go straight to JDRF, the world's biggest non-profit funder of T1D research. Their research is dedicated to curing T1D and improving the lives of those people currently living with this disease. We truly believe a cure to T1D can be found in Mamie's lifetime. Please join us in supporting this incredibly important cause. Thank you!

Did you know T1D:

- Strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle.

- Occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. Insulin is essential to turning food into energy.

- Requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin. JDRF is working every day to change this. And every dollar I raise helps them continue to bring life-changing therapies from the lab to the community until a cure is found.

I have been hard at work training and fundraising, and your gift today will propel me toward the finish line. Please donate and help JDRF achieve its goal of a world without T1D.

Please check back to view my fundraising progress as my ODRAM weekend approaches. Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,

Chris and Mamie Ewing
