Ride to Cure Diabetes


Turn Type One to Type None through the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes!

The 2014 JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes is open for registration. More than 1,200 cyclists have signed up to raise money for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research in what is set to be our biggest JDRF Ride season ever. We don’t want you to miss out! Will you commit to ride for a world without T1D and register this year?

Watch first-time rider Brooke Epley explain how the JDRF Ride is “not about the miles.”

Regardless of which JDRF Ride you chose, you’ll experience an unforgettable weekend with others who are challenging themselves personally while working together to create a world without T1D. Best of all, the money you raise helps JDRF bring life-changing therapies to people with T1D until we find a cure.


Be Part of the Cure
The money you raise helps JDRF fund the critical research that is needed to find a cure. JDRF has created powerful online fundraising tools to make it easier for you to reach your goal and our staff can help you with materials, ideas, and support.

Reach your training and fundraising goals
As a rider, you’ll commit to a fundraising minimum (packages start at $2,000). JDRF will provide you with comprehensive training and fundraising assistance from the moment you sign up through your Ride weekend

New England Ride to Cure Diabetes Coaches:
2014 marks an important milestone for the New England JDRF Ride Team since we will have a total of 3 coaches to help all riders meet and exceed their cycling and fundraising goals for their ride!  Training for the 2014 season has certainly been a challenge for most of us due to the unusually cold weather but we encourage you to get out there!

We want to make sure you all have everything you need to train successfully for your distance goal.  Please make sure to reach out the one of our coaches for help with your training and fundraising!
