Above the Fold: Supply Chain Logistics News (October 7, 2022)

My bike is boxed, shipped, and on its way to Death Valley. 

I’ll be there next week at this time, getting ready to cycle 100 miles in the desert with my Logistics Leaders for T1D Cure teammates.

Earlier this week, on October 4th, it was the 11 year anniversary of my oldest daughter Hannah getting diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). She was 11 years old at the time. As I’ve written before, it is an anniversary that I don’t celebrate. No cake, no balloons, no presents. But it is a day that I cannot forget. 

The first time I cycled in Death Valley was in 2016. I was given a blue JDRF bracelet before the ride and I have worn it ever since. Whenever I struggle during a bike ride, I look down at it and it brings me the strength I need to keep going. Unless it breaks, I won’t take it off until a cure is found.

And until a cure is found, I will continue to fundraise. It isn’t easy asking for donations, especially during hard economic times, but every donation counts and gets us closer to creating a world without type 1 diabetes. I’m still short of my fundraising goal, so if you’re interested in supporting the cause, you can donate via my page. Any amount is greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your support, and thank you to our team sponsors e2open and TranzAct Technologies for making it possible.

Moving on, here’s the supply chain and logistics news that caught my attention this week:

Since Monday is a holiday for many, I suspect many folks are leaving the office early or taking the day off today. So, I’ll leave my commentary for next week too.

Have a happy weekend!
