JDRF Ride Updates & 2024 Season Info!

in ,

We have one Ride event left in the 2023 season with  Death Valley, CA in January to round out an amazing season! And with that, we continue to pedal miles to mission, raise critical T1D funds for research and show our deepest thanks for our riders & coaches. Will you join us in 2024?! 

Congratulations Amelia Island Coaches! 

On Saturday, December 2, four coaches represented Team Wisconsin as they supported more than 450 riders along their Rides, ensuring everyone crossed the finish line – safe, sound and smiling! The Amelia Island, FL event raised over $2.1 million, a JDRF Ride to Cure record for a single event! Thank you to Coaches Corinne Merten, Scott Meyer, Doug Pulvermacher and Dan Woolf for all you do for the Ride community! 

Join the JDRF Ride Community! 

The JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes is a charitable bike ride that raises money for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. The JDRF Ride gives new and experienced cyclists — and their friends and families — the opportunity to fundraise for life changing T1D research along with the entire Ride community. 

Participants choose how and where they want to ride, train with their coaches and team to achieve their mileage goals (no matter how long or short) and use guidance from their JDRF chapters to meet and exceed their fundraising goals. 

Registration will open on Thursday, February 1, 2024!
