Training is almost up, our bikes are ready and raring to go, and we are, too! From June 7-11, two sisters, a med student, and a T1D, will be setting out to conquer the 185 mile Cabot Trail around Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia. We will be biking to raise money for the Diabetes Research Institute in its quest to cure type 1 diabetes.
The scientific community has made numerous strides over the past several years in developing better treatments for type 1, and are ever closer to a cure.
If you or someone you love has type 1 diabetes, then you know that it is an autoimmune disease that can strike anyone at any time and causes the pancreas to stop producing insulin. You know that type 1 diabetes robs children of the freedom and innocence of childhood; that it takes lives prematurely; and that patients worry about their future as they try to manage diabetes every minute of every day. The one thing you dream about: a cure for type 1 diabetes.
We ask you to please join us and the rest of the T1D community in our fight to eradicate this devastating disease entirely.
We are very excited for this adventure and ask that when you get a free minute, please spread the word and consider donating to our cause. Every amount helps.

Thank you all so much...let the journey begin!
-Sam, Dylan, Lauren, and Neo
