A nice lady I never even met before, Jessica,  just finished the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes in  Monterey California May 13-16. She rode in my honor! Here are her remarks after finishing and some pictures.


Dear Donna,

The Ride to Cure was great.  My mom, my brother, and I all finished the entire 100 miles in Monterey.  It was one of the most physically
challenging events I have ever participated in.  It was also one of the
most rewarding things I have ever done.  Overall, the event raised over
a 1/2 million dollars.  Combined, my mom, my brother, and I are short
roughly $3,000 to the $10,500 we are collectively raising.  I feel
confident we will be able to do it by the June 18th deadline.  
Just so you know, I was thinking about Stephanie as I was riding.  I
also put her name on my shirt so that others would know who I was riding
in honor of.

Thank you for your support with my ride.  I wish you and Stephanie the
best of luck with your pursuits and with fighting to find a cure for
diabetes. You will be in my prayers in the days to come.  



Jessica and her mother and brother who also went along for the ride.

Team Alabama.
