About This Activity

Come join Team Give Back’s first annual benefit bike ride. All proceeds will benefit Alex Speir’s family for the cost of a diabetic alert dog, Lucy which is $20,000.

There will be food, music and a great bicycle ride to benefit this family.

In 2011, when Alex was only 10 years old, she was diagnosed with Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes. After having diabetes for 5 years, in the fall of 2016, Alex was no longer able to detect on her own when her levels were dropping. This is where Lucy comes in at. Lucy is a Diabetic Alert Dog (D.A.D). She is a 2 year old AKC registered British Labrador who has been training since she was only 8 weeks old. Lucy can detect on her own when Alex’s blood sugar starts to drop or rise due to unsafe levels. She is trained to alert Alex immediately when this happens. Because of the breed, ability and the long training process that is required, as well as the ongoing communications with the trainer after Lucy comes to live with Alex, her purchase price is $20,000.
