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!
November 22nd I’ll be riding 104 miles in the Tour de Tucson for Team JDRF – Ride for a Cure.
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!
