The Northeast Wisconsin Chapter came out in full force for the 2017 JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes. 42 riders participated in 3 different locations this summer and collectively raised over $157,000!!!
Our team consisted of 3 amazing Coaches, 6 T1D Riders, 5 Youth Riders, 9 first time riders, and 19 returning riders! Riders participated in rides in Lacrosse, WI, Loveland,CO, and Saratoga Springs, NY.
Highlights of the Ride Season included our very own Samantha Wells being recognized as the Best Youth Rider at the Lacrosse Ride, Youth Rider Holden Meidl was asked to speak during the Thursday night dinner about why he rides for his sister Meredith with T1D, and Board Member Sandy Walters had a great finish line photo with JDRF CEO, Derek Rapp.
The JDRF Ride isn’t just a bike ride: it’s where hundreds of riders come together from all over the world to make new friendships, experience the unparalleled camaraderie of the Ride community and raise money to find a cure for T1D.
Look for the 2018 Ride Locations coming out soon!
