Honor Roll – JDRF Ride, we’re in this together.

helmet JDRF rideRunning out of time and just realizing that I won’t have my laptop with me to post my Honor Roll the day of the ride. It has become my tradition to honor everyone when I do an event, and with 100 miles, well that is a lot of honoring, and I couldn’t be happier to do it.  It’s my way of  not only honoring the T1D families but those that have helped us get here.

Our cause is not always your cause and we are grateful for your support, your encouragement, and your endless generosity.

Here is the honor roll for Saturday’s ride, a bit premature, please excuse any typo’s and forgive me if I have forgotten someone, please let me know if I did and I’ll be sure to give them a special shout-out after the ride.

Friends and family have shared causes that are near and dear to their hearts, or the names of loved ones that they are missing and want to send a little extra love to on that day. With these extra miles, (it’s a big jump from 13.1 to 100 ;)) I was able to add a few special people myself, people that have inspired me to reach further and keep going.

Thank you for everything! I’ll be thinking of all of you Saturday and praying for some tailwinds!

It’s always better when we’re together…and I don’t go anywhere without you or a little bit of Jack.
