A nice lady I never even met before,
Jessica, just finished the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes in Monterey
California May 13-16. She rode in my honor! Here are her remarks after finishing
and some pictures.
The Ride to Cure was great. My mom, my brother, and I all finished the
entire 100 miles in Monterey. It was one of the most physically
challenging events I have ever participated in. It was also one of the
most rewarding things I have ever done. Overall, the event raised over
a 1/2 million dollars. Combined, my mom, my brother, and I are short
roughly $3,000 to the $10,500 we are collectively raising. I feel
confident we will be able to do it by the June 18th deadline.
Just so you know, I was thinking about Stephanie as I was riding. I
also put her name on my shirt so that others would know who I was riding
in honor of.
Thank you for your support with my ride. I wish you and Stephanie the
best of luck with your pursuits and with fighting to find a cure for
diabetes. You will be in my prayers in the days to come.
Jessica and her mother and brother who also
went along for the ride.
