Thunder Ride

Thunder Ride to Cure Juvenile Diabetes (Summer)

July 2019

Help us serve food to the riders!

Each year, we volunteer to serve food to all of the riders of this great cause.  Check back for information on how to volunteer to help out.

Every year for the last 15 years we have hoped for a cure, and we will ride for the day when Diabetes is no longer the reason why. Until then we are still here to raise money to continue to care for our Coulee Region children who need the most help in caring for their diabetes. By the generous donations from sponsors, families, friends and new supporters to this cause, we have been able to consecutively raise in the neighborhood of $50,000.

The Funds raised are distributed between dedicated accounts with Gundersen Health System and Mayo Clinic Health System. The grant application process in both facilities work to provide physician visits, pharmacological supplies, specialized equipment, insulin pumps, medications, child care and respite care. The funds are given to families who struggle to make ends meet, during their child’s fight with this disease. There are over 200 kids in these hospitals that need our help.
