The final rides of the 2019 JDRF Ride to Cure season are right around the corner and our Chapter still has a few riders to cheer on! Team Western Wisconsin, better known as the Honey Badgers, has 98 riders registered this year, all participating to help fund life-changing type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. These riders have been training and fundraising all summer and and now our last few riders finally have their chance to get on the course.
The JDRF Ride to Cure in Amelia Island will take place on Saturday, October 5th. This ride goes along pristine beaches, over marshlands, and through beautiful maritime forests, making it a very enjoyable ride. Amelia Island riders have raised over $1.5 million already! Good luck to first-time rider, Ryan, and thank you for helping to turn type one into type none!
Amelia Island Ride Participant: Ryan Burton
After the Amelia Island Ride, the JDRF Ride to Cure will wrap-up in Death Valley, CA. The JDRF Ride in Death Valley is Saturday, October 19th. This classic JDRF Ride has raised nearly $800,000 and still has a few weeks to go! Thank you to all of our Death Valley riders, you are getting us closer to a world without T1D!
Death Valley Ride Participants: Joe Brady, John Franz, Megen Johnson, Gary Peak
Good luck, Honey Badgers—everyone at the JDRF Western Wisconsin Chapter is rooting for you!
