Last month, Autoscribe employee Hugh McVeety participated in the 2017 JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes in Ft. Collins, Colorado. Hugh joined with hundreds of riders to bike for more than 100 miles and personally raised more than $2 thousand in donations to help find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes (T1D).
When asked about why he decided to start raising awareness for diabetes, McVeety said “Diabetes took my grandmother’s life, and it deeply affects the lives of dear friends and their families in my community. I’m taking part in the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes because I know that my fundraising efforts will help improve the lives of millions of people living with Type 1 Diabetes.”
The JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes is a charitable bike ride that to date has raised over $38 million for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. The Ride gives cyclists of all ages and skill levels the opportunity fundraise for JDRF, the global leader in T1D research.
