Cycling for a Cure

Cycling for a Cure

 

Cycling for a Cure will be an indoor “cycle-a-thon”. Teams can sponsor bikes and keep “ryders” on them throughout the event.  There will be:

  • Entertainment
  • Special guest appearances
  • Food
  • Activities for the kids
  • DJ

This indoor cycle-a-thon provides an opportunity for fundraising and fitness.  Start a team, join a team, or ryde as an individual.  No experience necessary — the Sweat Therapy Fitness staff will ensure every ryder is set to cycle on a RealRyder bike.  Participants can ryde for their desired amount of time, whether it is 20 minutes or an hour.  Team captains will be responsible for recruiting team ryders and leading the team’s fundraising efforts.

JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we achieve a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, regulatory influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure T1D.

As the largest charitable supporter of T1D research, JDRF is currently sponsoring $530 million in scientific research in 17 countries. In 2012 alone, JDRF provided more than $110 million to T1D research. More than 80 percent of JDRF’s expenditures directly support research and research-related education. In 2012 Forbes magazine named JDRF one of its five All-Star charities, citing the organization’s efficiency and effectiveness.
