Team Illinois is Going the Distance

The first two JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes events are in the books!

The 2017 Ride season began in La Crosse, WI where Team Illinois sent 59 riders, including 33 from our first-ever corporate sponsor, Livongo. They made a splash at La Crosse by taking the third highest fundraising chapter as a team. Individually, local Illinois Ride Coach, Brian Vandenberg was awarded the Top Recruitment Jersey as well as third highest overall fundraiser and local Illinois Rider, Angie Jarzyna, was awarded the Spirit Jersey.

A couple weeks later, Team Illinois sent 17 riders to Loveland, CO for the city’s inaugural JDRF Ride where local Illinois Rider, John Mertz, was the third highest overall fundraiser in Loveland.
