Welcome to my JDRF ODRAM fundraising page!
I’m taking part in the 2022 ODRAM, along with hundreds of riders from around the world, to raise money for JDRF, the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.
This year I'm raising money in honor of my friend Tom Miller. Tom has been a friend for over 30 years and has type I diabetes. He volunteered to help organize/run ODRAM for 12 years and has worked on various fundraising projects for this disease. We have laughed, sailed, skied, biked, traveled together - he would appreciate your donation for this cause!
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.
