2013 TOUR DE CURE
- THEME OF THIS YEAR IS 100 MILES OR BUST -
Less than 1 Month to Go!!!! Time for everyone to rally and help us put this over the top. I ride to fight my personal battle with Type 2 Diabetes. Help support me personally as I help to support all who struggle with Diabetes.
Every 17 seconds another person is diagnosed with diabetes. That is more than 2000 a day. This represents a portion of the 26 MILLION people living with this disease. We need resources, education and the drive to find a cure for both Type I and Type II Diabetics. American Diabetes Association is a community of caring people driving toward a cure.
Type II Diabetes is something that I live with every day of my life. Even with the dramatic weight loss and transformation of the past years I know I will always be addicted to food and have to make a daily decision about my health.
Join me this year in my third quest on the Tour De Cure. My goal is to ride 100 miles. This is something that I only once dreamed of being able to do and now I am looking forward to not only crossing the finish line but crossing with energy. Surrounded by a great team of riders.
Training has begun. My ask is that you dig deep into your pocket to help support the American Diabetes Association. If it was not for their resources I truly believe my life would be headed in the complete wrong direction. Please consider making a donation at a minimum level of $26.00 - $1 for per Million. For those with more consider sponsoring me a $1 per mile for $100.00.
There are many out there that have been recently diagnosed and need support. Please give and give generously to help.
I ride each mile in training and day of the event as a sign of what it takes to battle this disease. I ride because I have to fight to keep healthy. I ride for my life and the life of all who struggle with their weight and diabetes. I ride because I care.
