An explanation

The "About Me" box to the right ------> lists an address to send donations. A new reader may wonder "What's that all about?" One my passions is finding a cure for Type 1 diabetes. My son Jake was diagnosed with Type 1 thirteen years ago when he was six. Since then our family has been very involved with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. JDRF is one of the top fundraising organizations in the world. Over 84% of everything JDRF raises goes directly toward diabetes research. As part of our efforts to raise money for the cause we ride our bicycles with the West Michigan JDRF Ride Team. This fund raising effort has raised over $1,000,000 in the past 6 years. To learn more about what we do check out our ride blogs, More Than 100 Miles and our Team site. And if you are so inclined you can mail a donation to the address in the "About Me" box. Please make the check out to JDRF.
