What if you could be a key participant in an event that is a major fundraiser for research to find a cure for a disease that almost surely is affecting someone you know? What if your total contribution to that effort is to “Just Ride Your Bike”?
One of your fellow members approached us with a wonderful event concept, and we are EXCITED! Under the auspices of the JDRF, Shawnee Trail Cycling Club is holding a month long event giving our members a chance to raise much needed funds to support the JDRF in their fight to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. What do you, as a member, have to do to make this event a success? That’s the easy part!
JUST RIDE YOUR BIKE!
That’s right, sponsors will be donating monies for every mile you bike on a regular STCC ride during the month of May! Our goal is to raise $100,000 for diabetes research through JDRF. There is no registration fee and no fundraising required on your part. All you do is RIDE!
During May, you’ll sign in at the beginning of each ride to have your miles count. We’ll take the logs, accumulate the totals for each ride and report back to you and the event sponsors how we’re managing towards our goals.
You're not a member of Shawnee Trail Cycling Club, but want to participate? That’s not a problem. Although everyone’s participation counts, donations are weighted towards members of STCC and those members of the JDRF Cycling Team. Play the biggest part you can in this effort and Join STCC today!
There will be more to come on this event, so stay in touch! Visit this page, join our Facebook group (open to all), follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our mailing list. You don’t want to miss this fun way to support a great cause!

JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, policy influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure T1D. www.jdrf.org
