Paycor Associate Helps Turn Type One into Type None

Several years ago, Orest, a member of Paycor's Accounting team, decided to join Team Southwest Ohio and participate in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund (JDRF)'s Ride to Cure Diabetes. As background, what is now called Type One Diabetes was previously referred to as Juvenile Diabetes. As the disease now affects a large number of adults, the name was changed to reflect that.

Orest was drawn to this cause through a good friend, who has Type One diabetes and has participated in the JDRF ride for several years. Orest says the Southwest team is "an extended family of cyclists, committed to supporting JDRF’s efforts to find a cure for Type One Diabetes."

Like he did in 2014, Orest led a Paycor Community Partners event to raise money for the JDRF with his 2015 ride—aptly named the "Tour de Tahoe"—which would take cyclists through California and Nevada. Orest set a personal goal of raising $5,000 in support of finding a cure for Type One Diabetes. As part of his collection drive, Orest raffled off two tickets to Perfect North Slopes for anyone who donated $20 or more to JDRF.

On September 13, 2015, Orest and thirty-one other cyclists from Team Southwest Ohio began a challenging 72-mile ride, which included 800-foot climbs and rolling hills at altitudes ranging from 6,300 to 7,100 feet above sea level. Orest's ride was successful, and so was his Community Partners event. Forty-eight Paycor Associates contributed $1,830. With the help of 84 total donors, Orest raised $4,540—just shy of his goal of $5,000.

Orest said after his event: "A heartfelt thank you to all the Paycor donors who supported the 2015 JDRF Tahoe Ride for the Cure! Your contributions really do make a difference in the fight to turn Type One into Type None."

Thirty members of Team Southwest Ohio raised $130,000 on the Tahoe ride. In total, the JDRF cyclists from around the nation raised $761,000 at this single event!

Orest continued, "I am proud to be a member of what has become a committed family of cyclists determined to defeat Type One Diabetes. I’m now contemplating the destination for my 2016 ride. I may be in Wisconsin, Florida, or Vermont, although returning to my 2014 destination, Death Valley, is appealing."

Thanks to Orest for living Paycor's guiding principles every day, and thanks to all the Paycor Associates who contributed to this worthy event!
