girlfriend over six years ago, made a commitment to help not only her, but millions of others with the same disease. “This is more than just a little romance. I have watched my fiancé test her blood sugar in the middle of the night, inject insulin shots, have taken her to the emergency room and help calculate carbohydrates and measure insulin with each meal. There is no better time in my life to go on this journey,” says Rosenhahn whose fiancé was diagnosed with type 1 at the age of nine.

Ryan’s fiancée meets Rosenhahn at the end of the journey in Manhattan in a special romantic ceremony at Rockefeller Center.

The riders will travel through cities like Las Vegas, Colorado Springs, Chicago, Lincoln, NB, Omaha, Pittsburgh, and Washington, DC. Connect For The Cure™ accepts donations from individuals, family and friends as well as corporate and group sponsorships. All donations are directly liked to the American Diabetes Association. Contributors will be given special acknowledgement on the Connect For The Cure website and other means by arrangement. The riders are also looking for support like food, clothing, cycle equipment and shelter along the route.

“We need a cure now,” says Orange County cyclist Christian Gagne, 23, whose mother was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 1999 and knows firsthand of the complications of diabetes that may not be reversible. While the job market for the sociology major may be tight, Gagne anticipates raising $100,000 during the course. “I will be thinking of each and everyone with diabetes with every push of the pedal and mile completed. Someday soon we hope that the 24 million with diabetes in the U.S. and many millions more won’t have to worry about a future with blindness, amputation, neuropathy, or kidney disease,” says Gagne.
