The 14th annual Thunder Ride to Cure Juvenile Diabetes on Saturday July, 30th 2016 is under way and we are preparing for the biggest year yet. Every year for the last 13 years we have hoped for a cure, and we will ride for the day when Diabetes is no longer the reason why. Until then we are still here to raise money to continue to care for our Coulee Region children who need the most help in caring for their diabetes. By the generous donations from sponsors, families, friends and new supporters to this cause, we have been able to consecutively raise in the neighborhood of $100,000.
The Funds raised are distributed between dedicated accounts with Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center and Mayo Clinic Health System, Franciscan Healthcare Medical Foundations. The grant application process in both facilities work to provide physician visits, pharmacological supplies, specialized equipment, insulin pumps, medications, child care and respite care. The funds are given to families who struggle to make ends meet, during their child’s fight with this disease. There are over 200 kids in these hospitals that need our help.
We are asking for your support in a way of monetary donation, or an item that can be used for our live auction, silent auction, or a door prize Item. Please send any donation to the address listed above. Thank you for your time and support. With your help, together we can and we will impact the lives of children with diabetes, their families, and continue to fight for a cure.
