Riding 160km's to change lives

I'm fundraising for a great cause!

After a few years layoff, I am again doing the JDRF One Ride (my 11th!) to raise funds for type 1 diabetes! This means I will be riding on the 17th February through the picturesque Barossa Valley.   Do not be fooled, it is still 160+ kms of hills and heat!

While I am challenging myself, I am also raising funds to help improve the lives of those living with type 1 diabetes.  Type 1 diabetes can strike anyone at any time, and 8 Australians are diagnosed every day. Diagnosis means a 24/7 fight with no break and people living with type 1 diabetes facing an extra 180 decisions a day to remain safe and healthy. JDRF is the largest funder of type 1 diabetes research in the world.

DONATE NOW to help change the lives of more than 130,000 Australians living with T1D. Thank you!

Excellent work on such a tough ride Michael! A fantastic feat for a fantastic cause (having recently been diagnosed as T1, I might be a little biased on the issue). Looking forward to following your next big venture!
