Naval Academy midshipmen participate in a wide variety of activities during the summer – serving on board ships alongside enlisted and officer personnel, traveling to foreign countries, working on internships with different companies, even chasing tornados. Midshipman 1st Class Haley Doyle was looking for something to work toward this summer while attending classes back in Annapolis, and a 100-mile cycle in support of juvenile diabetes research posed an ideal challenge. Approximately 170 cyclists from all over the country participated in the July 27 event, raising more than $600,000 to help fund research into a cure for Type 1 diabetes, a genetic condition that prevents the body from producing insulin. Doyle raised $5,377.
