Each month, the JDRF Southwest Ohio staff recognizes a special volunteer who goes above and beyond in supporting the chapter and is a positive ambassador for the organization.
August 2017 Volunteer of the Month
Daniel Feldkamp has been riding in a JDRF Ride to Cure since 2005. When he first became involved in the ride, he had no connections to T1D. Now, he has so many close friends in his T1D family and since being involved his cousin, Lexi has been diagnosed with T1D. Daniel says, “We ride every mile for Lexi and so many others effected by T1D.” When asked about his most memorable moment with JDRF, Daniel said that “Every moment as a coach for 6 years was amazing and rewarding. I love helping our Southwest Ohio Team and JDRF Ride to Cure riders across the country achieve their goals.” Now, his step daughters, Katy and Emily Myers, ride as well. When he’s not training or coaching, Daniel loves hanging out with his wife and 6 kids.
Thank you, Daniel, for helping JDRF find a cure for type 1 diabetes!
