She Sugar: Riding 104 Miles for JDRF


type 1 diabetes, advocacy, JDRF, diabetes awareness month

November is Diabetes Awareness Month and I’ve got two special things in store:

  • I’ll be moderating Diabetic Connect’s #DCDE Twitter chat on Tuesday evenings 9 p.m. EST with other diabetes advocates and experts as guests.  Please try to stop by for the conversation – this is open to all types of diabetes and providers!

If you haven’t noticed all of my posts and pictures pertaining to riding my bicycle on Facebook, then you may not know my other full-time job this summer and fall was spent on a bicycle saddle.  I may be the one providing the pedal power and balancing my blood sugars over 104 miles, but the truth is – I’m riding for you.

I’m riding for the hundreds of little hands that I’ve held as a nurse volunteering in the middle of the night, checking blood sugars at diabetes camps.

I want there to be a day when these sweet kiddos can say: “Remember when I had diabetes?“.

Please consider a small donation towards JDRF through this ride, every dollar matters!  I have raised $3,000 and there’s less than three weeks until race day – thank you for your support!
