SARATOGA SPRINGS – For the first time ever, one of the nation’s top advocacy groups for type 1 diabetes (T1D) has organized a cycling fundraiser in the city.

From Sept. 14-17, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) will host the Ride to Cure Diabetes. As one of five venues chosen nationwide, the event will bring together more than 750 cyclists of all ages and skill levels (512 will be riding with T1D) as they fundraise for JDRF, the global leader in T1D research.

There is a $2,000 fundraising minimum to take part in the event, which begins and ends at the Saratoga Springs City Center. Riders choose an event fundraising package and set their own mileage goal (25, 60 or 100 miles). Along the way, they receive support from ride coaches and fundraising experts who help them reach and exceed their fundraising goals. During the event, participants join fellow riders in lively seminars, excursions around town, award dinners and team celebrations that lead up to Ride Day.

The bike rides, which occur August through November, offer a unique and unforgettable experience. This year’s other host sites include: La Crosse, Wisconsin (Aug. 10-13); Loveland, Colorado (Aug. 24-27); Amelia Island, Florida (Oct. 5-8); and Tucson, Arizona (Nov. 16-19).
