My bike is packed, shipped and on my way to Death Valley.
I’ll be there next week at this time, getting ready to cycle 100 miles through the desert with my teammates from Logistics Leaders for T1D Cure.
Earlier this week, October 4, was the 11th anniversary of my eldest daughter Hannah’s Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) diagnosis. She was 11 at the time. As I have already written, it is an anniversary that I do not celebrate. No cake, no balloons, no gifts. But it’s a day I can’t forget.
The first time I cycled in Death Valley was in 2016. I was given a blue JDRF wristband before the ride and have been wearing it ever since. Every time I fight on a bike ride, I watch it and it gives me the strength I need to keep going. Unless it breaks, I won’t remove it until a cure is found.
And until a cure is found, I will continue to fundraise. Asking for donations isn’t easy, especially in tough economic times, but every donation counts and brings us closer to creating a world without type 1 diabetes. I haven’t reached my fundraising goal yet. funds, so if you are interested in supporting the cause, you can donate via my page. Any amount is really appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your support, and thanks to our team sponsors e2open and TranzAct Technologies for making this possible.
Moving on, here’s the supply chain and logistics news that caught my eye this week:
Since Monday is a holiday for many, I suspect a lot of people are leaving the office early or taking the day off today. So I’ll leave my review for next week too.
Have a good weekend !
