Special Coverage of Team IGA JDRF and the Race Across America

Here at SusanvilleStuff.com WebXtra we are really proud to bring you coast to coast coverage of the JDRF IGA Team as they ‘Race Across America.’

We’ll have milestone updates, behind the scenes coverage from crew member Jim Chapman and links to lots of up to the minute video and audio from the road.

Susanville’s own Rick and Anna Stewart take off for an adventure of a lifetime this week as they participate in the Race Across America as stars of the JDRF IGA Team.

The riders and crew will be travelling 3,000 miles, climbing 170,000 feet, crossing 12 states, passing through 88 counties and 359 different communities between Oceanside, California and Annapolis, Maryland. All, hopefully, in less than six days from coast to coast.

Not only is the JDRF IGA bike team going for a cross country record, but at the same time they are striving to raise $100,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

The JDRF raises money throughout the year to help fund research to find a cure for type 1 diabetes, a disease which currently afflicts more than 3 million people in America alone.

 

Riding for a cure for Juvenile Diabetes, Rick holds a picture of Kendra Lee of Roseburg OR, one of 3 million kids who suffer from Type 1 diabetes.
