Riding for Diabetes!

This May, I will be riding for Diabetes. (click here to donate) This is my 8th year, riding for the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure fundraising event. Last year, StampAuctionNetwork users gave over $45,000 to support me in this effort and put me in 1st place!

This is a favorite riding photo of mine. I am near the top of the Beartooth Hwy pass between Red Lodge, Montana and the North East entrance to Yellowstone. It was June and there were still 5 foot snow drifts carved off the highway and skiers at the top!

Click this link to see how I am doing and to give a donation.
