Eight days to go until I and my Logistics Leaders for Type 1 Diabetes Cure teammates set out to cycle 100 miles in support of JDRF and its quest to create a world without T1D.

Thanks to the generous support of our team sponsors and supporters, as well as family and friends, our team has raised over $57,000 so far! I’m hoping we can raise another $5K this week to get us closer to our goal, so if you’re interested in supporting our team and cause, you can donate via this link (no amount is too small).

Have a happy weekend!
