YOU are why we ride!
Being a Red Rider means that you are not alone and according to Mari Ruddy, the Red Rider Founder, “this year, and from here on out, we must be visible and proud. You did not ask for your membership into the diabetic fellowship, but here you are and how you activate your membership is up to you. If you are a person surviving diabetes, I implore you to ride this year and do everything you can to declare your status, so others on the course and in the wider community have the opportunity to celebrate and be inspired by you. I ask you to get on your bike and ride strong and sure. The ride itself is the affirmation of your courage and perseverance. If you don’t live with either of these particular health challenges, why do I invite you to join? Because diabetes is simply a dramatic representation of what each of us lives with on this human journey. All of us have challenges of one sort or another. It is our courage to overcome and make healthy choices about how we live, no matter the obstacles, that binds us together. I ask you to join the Red Riders in celebration of all that you have overcome to be where you are.”
