The JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes is a partnership. This event is designed to be a personal challenge. Pair it with some homemade cookies, fresh fruit or an ice cream bar (kept in a cooler with dry ice), and you’ve got yourself a pretty nice fundraising stand. Diabetes Tasmania is here to help you understand how you can be healthy and feel great. In this post, I will break down the way that you can fundraise with our company for your diabetes service dog.

And perhaps they don’t realize that the person standing in front of them, asking for their support, is one of the nearly 30 million Americans that face the daily struggles of diabetes. Whether it be an employer that sees the rising health care costs associated with diabetes or a teacher expecting her first child that witnesses the struggles a student with type 1 faces, everyone you meet will have a reason to give.
