Joey has been involved in fundraising for type 1 diabetes research since 2007 when his nephew Cooper was diagnosed at 22 months old. Who would have ever imagined that 2 years later, Joey would be diagnosed with the same chronic illness? And beyond that, who would have ever imagined that Joey and Cooper would become the American Diabetes Association’s Youth Ambassadors for SE Wisconsin. Crazy!
They are “gearing” up, to ride in the 2014 Tour de Cure bike ride on June 14th, 2014. To get the wheels turning, (hee-hee) the ADA is throwing a kick-off party to highlight this years event. We need all “Handles” on deck for this party.
Here are the details:
March 19th, 2014 – 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Brewhouse Inn & Suites – 1215 N 10th Street, Milwaukee, WI
Join us to mingle, hear Joey & Cooper talk about the event, meet new friends, have some light appetizers, win prizes – which include a Saris Bike Rack, A night at the Pfister Hotel, A Wine Tasting Party! We are hoping for a chain gang of riders to join us!!
