August 19th is just around the corner, and I've been busy training for the 100-mile JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes. Just a reminder that I need your help and support. My fundraising goal is $3500.00. I'm currently at the $2200.00 mark. Help me make it the rest of the way. PDF donation forms and a link to donate online are available at www.jimcrotty.com/jim_crotty_jdrf_ride_to_cure.
Since becoming involved with the JDRF Ride to Cure I've had the opportunity to get to know some great people. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is a wonderful organization to support. In 2005 more than $98 million was awarded to diabetes research. The Ride is one of JDRF's top fundraisers.
p.s. - Anyone who donates $50 or more can receive a free 11"x17" inkjet print of one of my nature, landscape, cityscape or wildlife images. Posted below is a sample. Just imagine this beautiful panoramic print of Ohio's Cedar Falls hanging in your lobby, office or home and the rewarding feeling that you helped in the fight against juvenile diabetes.
