On July 5, 2021 our 20yr old son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. This was life changing for him and upsetting as a parent when you realize what it means to have Diabetes. He has faced this challenge head on over the last year and worked really hard to manage it and not let it take over who he is as a person. Diabetes is challenging as it never takes a day off but hopefully that will change in the near future.
I have decided to face my own challenge in the month of September in support of Diabetes Canada's - LACE UP to End Diabetes. My goal is to mountain bike 250km and raise $2500 to help support the cause.
Every dollar raised helps fund education, support services, advocacy and diabetes research that could lead to the next big medical breakthrough.
Please show your support by helping me reach my fundraising goal. Check back often to see updates on my progress.
Thank you for cheering me on!
