LIV Apartments Rides for JDRF Revolution

On October 6th, LIV Apartments attended the JDRF Revolution Ride and it was a ride to remember! JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) uses research funding and advocacy to search for a cure and a way to end type 1 diabetes. You can learn about the different ways that you can get involved here.

LIV Apartments had a team of 5 members participate in JDRF Revolution Ride. For 7 minutes, each member rode on a stationary bike as fast as they could.

The event kicked off with a few words from Mayor Jim Watson, followed by a motivational speech from a young boy (age 11) who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the young age of 3. As the team members rode, there was music, an MC, and a TON of teams cheering each other on and encouraging team members to pedal faster.

Throughout the event, prizes were given away for craziest rider, most team spirit, best dancer and more. The LIV team is the proud recipient of “Best Dancer” and “Most Team Spirit”!

Our photo booth was set up with fun props and it was a huge hit! You can find your photo booth pictures here.

The event was a huge success in building awareness for type 1 diabetes and in raising funds for further research to find a cure.

We had an amazing time at the event and look forward to next year!
