My target 250 kms

I'm fundraising for Type1 Diabetes Research!

I have been a Type 1 Diabetic for 30 years (31 in Sept). I'm extremely fortunate to have been born in an era where modern synthetic life-saving insulin is available. In fact, this year is the 100 year anniversary of the discovery of insulin. Fact: when I was young, I injected insulin extracted from cows.

Despite the amazing advances science gives us, diabetes is a full time job and then some, outside of our normal lives. I use everything at my disposal - Continuous glucose monitoring costing $330/month, closed loop insulin pump control, and we even trained our Groodle Lumi to alert to my blood sugar fluctuations.

But...any slight advance in technology and the work JDRF does make diabetic lives easier, and reduces the complications which can arise.

I have a bunch of health issues, but I'm committing to riding to hopefully delay further complications. I'd love you to also do what you can, and donate to JDRF. Whether for a cure or just to ensure so little kid can enjoy a great childhood, please help out!
