Seduction Motorsports​ has teamed up with JDRF​ to auction a brand new 2016 Seduction Motorsports 550 Spyder Outlaw here: 


I myself, Daniel Verwers​ was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 16 years ago at the age of 15, it has been a struggle daily.I truly believe we are close to finding a cure. JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. They exist for the millions of children, adults and families affected by this disease. Their strength lies in our exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to stop T1D.

T1D is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. You cannot prevent it—and there is currently no cure. If you have T1D, you must constantly monitor your blood–sugar level, rely on injected or infused insulin and carefully monitor your eating and activity—day and night.

That's why JDRF works every single day to remove the burden of this disease—and to prevent anyone else from knowing it—by funding research, advocating for government support of research and new treatments, ensuring new therapies get to market and engaging the T1D community. They've raised $2 billion for research to–date and made significant progress in understanding and funding this disease.

Every dollar they put into T1D research comes from donations. That's why JDRF needs your help. Go to Bring-A-Trailer and sign up for an account so when the auction goes live, you can place your bid. Help JDRF further our vision of a creating a world without T1D. Together, we can walk to the finish. And turn Type One into Type None.

JDRF’s mission is to find a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications through the support of research. Every dollar we are able to direct towards this critical research comes from donors like you. Your generosity makes real progress and propels us toward our goal of a world without T1D. Your tax- deductible gift today will help us continues our work to bring life-changing treatments to the millions of people living with T1D until we find a cure.
