From September 13-16, 400 riders from across the country traveled to Saratoga Springs, New York to ride their bikes through upstate New York to raise over $1.5 million for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.
We would like to acknowledge and thank the three riders who represented our Chapter as part of Team NorCal – Ride Coach Steve Meece, and riders Tim Williams and Jen Dole. They completed the 100 mile route and together raised over $10,000 for type 1 diabetes research. Thank you for your passion, dedication, and commitment in supporting JDRF!
