Tour de Cure St. Louis
Team Two Bits
HELP US START A CHAIN REACTION IN THE FIGHT TO STOP DIABETES!!!
On June 1, 2013, Team Two Bits will be cycling in the American Diabetes Association's Annual Tour de Cure fund-raising event along the Great River Road in Alton, IL for the 9th year in a row . Some of our team members will be riding the 100 mile century route while others will be riding the 50 mile course.
Over the past eight Tour de Cure rides, Team Two Bits as a whole has raised over $65,000.00. We could not have done this without your support!
Here is a snapshot of what you have helped to make possible over the past couple of years:

We are extremely proud of what our team has accomplished to help in the fight against Diabetes, and we do not plan on stopping anytime soon! In fact, 2013 is an very special year for us, and we hope to honor the spirit for which this team was created and surpass our previous amounts with your help and raise $25,000.00 in 2013!
The Team Two Bits journey started on October 1, 2003, when Sarah's grandfather, Robert L. Vallow passed away. 2013 marks the 10-year anniversary of his passing, and we want to honor him along with all of our other friends and family that live with diabetes in a BIG way this year!
All of us have friends and family members who are currently battling this disease. Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, sisters, brothers, children, friends and co-workers abound that have been touched by this currently incurable disease. Many of us have had the opportunity to meet many diabetes patients---- those in the beginning stages and those in complete kidney failure relying on dialysis treatments to keep them alive. It has opened our eyes to how widespread this disease is and how many different people- young and old, of all races and backgrounds are affected. This disease does not discriminate among its sufferers. Through participating in this race, we hope to honor the memories of those we have lost, raise awareness, and raise money to aid in furthering scientific research and advocacy campaigns.
