“Being a mother of three, I know how much T1D can impact our youth."

"I want to be able to do whatever I can to help find a cure and make a difference in individuals that are impacted by type 1 diabetes. I like to challenge our team where we don’t want to just meet the minimum fundraising requirements – we want to exceed them."

"We are definitely a competitive bunch…but we want to be one of the top fundraising teams so we can have a positive outcome in finding a cure for T1D.”

"The ride is very important to me and my family. It’s not only a way to raise the much needed funds to find a cure for type 1, it’s also a way for us to tell our story."

"One of my biggest motivators is having my daughter, who lives with type 1, involved in all of our efforts. Seeing her at events, checking her blood, watching her carbs and taking her insulin tends to be the only motivation people need."

"The only advice I would give others looking to raise funds is to be sincere, honest and personal."

"The Ride enables me to work with those close to me towards a common objective of making the lives of kids living with type 1 diabetes easier."

"My son is 13 years old and he was diagnosed with T1D at two and a half years old. From that point on, we made it our mission for this boy to have a ‘normal’ life, and do all the activities that he wanted."

"This has proven to be a possibility given the advancements in science and technology."

"Living with type 1 diabetes has changed how my whole family lives. We have to be very organized and plan ahead."

"It’s important that T1D research is funded so that a cure can be found, and people living with it can live their lives without all the extra worry."

"A cure to me would mean never having to sit out when my blood sugars are low. I don’t want other kids to miss our on having fun either."
