A plea to my local friends - Kids for a Cure Bike Ride 2011 - DO IT!!

As most of you know, I have a bestie Shark who has a Type 1 diabetic son.  I have watched first had their battle day after day after day.  Sucks.

Tib does an annual ride for the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) and is hosting a fundraiser THIS SATURDAY!

What makes this fun, is it's all about the kids.  Ethan has watched her do rides for the JDRF and wondered why there wasn't a ride that kids could do.  So, being the awesome momma that she is, this is her fundraiser.

$15.00 registration fee.  That's it kids.  You can ride your bike, your scooter, run it, walk it, or even just come and hang out and win a raffle prize.  There will also be some awesome items for the silent auction.

As I've watched her work over the past many weeks putting this all together, hustling for donations and phone call after phone call - I am simply in awe of her dedication.  I want this to be BIG - I want it to be so successful that it will be worth all her hard work! 

Really, what I want is a cure for type 1 diabetes, and every penny gets us one step further. 

So deets:

Saturday August 27, 2011  8:30am - 12:00pm
Gardner Village, West Jordan, UT

1100 West 7800 South

Click for registration details, or you can register the morning of - either way come out and support this great cause.

Wait just a minute...this would explain why she hasn't been calling me on the phone.

She's a humanitarian.

Holy Hannah...

My brother was diagnosed as Type 1 as an adult. I would love to ride but don't have a bike.

I'm pretty sure you can still see the UP house. You can even do a free inside tour as long as you go during daytime hours. And as of Monday, they haven't sold it yet. The rooms were just dream rooms designed by the Make-A-Wish kids. The builder told me they are asking 400K for it.

My sweetie and my oldest daughter both have type 2 diabetes. You are doing much good here!
