2. Riding for a world without 1.This is the fundraising page of Jonatan & Willem Rombauts
( Member of team: JDRF Jeugdambassadeurs )
We wanted to ride on our bikes from our hometown Munich to Willem's homeland the Netherlands, a tour of around 850 kilometers. We also thought about how we could contribute to a good cause. So, we decided to combine the two.
Jonatan was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in January 2014 at the age of 9. By keeping a healthy diet, frequent blood sugar checks and lots of exercising he is doing really well, without a major impact on his life. However, obviously we all want to live in a world without type 1 diabetes, to which we would like to contribute.
We will start our ride on June 6th in Munich and plan to arrive on June 15th at the JDRF One Walk event in Breukelen in the Netherlands. Please feel free to join us for a day or two, at the beginning, the middle, or the end. Your donation to JDRF to reward our effort will be so much appreciated.
