While it's still a few weeks away, just want to bump this up a little. A little background on this event. My now 11 year old son has been riding with me for a few years now, including participating in various organized fundraiser rides. When he was diagnosed with Juvenile or Type 1 Diabetes 2 1/2 years ago, we said we would look to see if we could find any rides that benefited Diabetes research. When we could not find one, he asked if we could have one. From this "Wheels For A Cure" was born.

Hope some of you can make it.

Thanks.

Jeff

Just a bump to the top as we are just a little over a week away.

Come out and help support finding a cure for Juvenile or Type 1 Diabetes....one mile at a time.

We'll be serving lunch and have a lot of great door, raffle, and silent auction prizes.

Hope you can make it.

If there are any questions, please PM me.

Thanks.

Jeff

One more bump....

So far, the weather forecast looks to be in our favor for Sunday.

The first year, we had 16 bikes....and it rained most of the day.
Last year, we had 35 bikes (nice sunny day).
This year???

Hope some of you will consider coming out and going for a ride, all to help support a worthy cause. Lunch is served after the ride, along with door prizes, raffle prizes, and a silent auction.

Help find a cure for diabetes.....one mile at a time.

Thanks.

We can absolutely take cash. If someone does want to pay by check, we do ask that it be made payable to JDRF.

See you Sunday.

Thanks.
