I will be doing 4 rides this Sunday for Mitochondrial Awareness Week which is a cause very important and close to my heart because my daughter has a mitochondrial disease.
Hi JSS Tribe! I am going to be riding in the NYC Studio on Sunday 9/24 for Mitochondrial Awareness Week and for my 150th ride.!!! After 8 years of searching for answers my daughter, Sydney , was finally diagnosed with a mitochondrial disease. Mitochondrial diseases occur when the mitochondria in a person’s cells cannot convert food into life sustaining energy. Sydney is now 25 and is one of 8 people in the world that have been identified with her specific mito disease
which affects her vision, speech, walking and balance. I am going to ride at 9:30am with Jenn for HOPE, at 10:30 am with Jenn for ENERGY(150th!!!) and then a 3rd ride for LIFE and a 4th ride for A CURE. Please join me in the studio or at home as we ride for Sydney and the many others with this devastating disease who can’t!
“YOU’VE GOT THE ENERGY…WE NEED THE CURE.”

My 9 year old daughter and I are participating in the Tour de Cure on October 28. We have committed to raise $200 for the American Diabetes Association. It is a 15 mile ride, which will be a challenge for my daughter since she hasn’t done this many miles, but I will be with her for moral support. Would love it if you could share this to the JSS tribe event website. My LB name is ATX_Angela. Every $ helps and I appreciate all donations!
