Team Red - Hampton Roads
Welcome to the Team RED Hampton Roads page.
Team RED Hampton Roads is for EVERYONE. If you are a Red Rider (a person living with ANY type of diabetes), family of a Red Rider, friend, co-worker of someone living with diabetes, then this is the team for you. Riders on our team don't need to ride the same distance and our team is not like a professional team or "club" team. There are no dues to pay, it doesn't cost any extra to be on this team and you can be a beginner rider or a hard core cyclist, all skill levels are welcome. Team RED Hampton Roads is for anyone and everyone looking for a place to fundraise together and support each other as we train for the RIDE OF OUR LIVES. The power of team!
2013 TEAM GOALS
Team Members: 90
Team Fundraising: $26,000.00 (representing the 26 million Americans living with diabetes)
Did you know that 1 in 3 children born in the year 2000 will develop diabetes and that statistics now show that by the year 2050, 1 in 3 adults will be living with diabetes? 25.8 million Americans suffer from diabetes and over 79 million people with pre-diabetes? Our area of Virginia,right here in Hampron Roads, has the highest incidence of diabetes in the state. We need to increase awareness and education to help slow these statistics down. WE NEED TO FIND A CURE!
We ride because we are proud to do our part to Stop Diabetes. We decided to team up to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes. We are committed to walk and raise money in this inspirational event not because 26 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because we personally know some of them, and want to do something about it.
If you can?t join us, support us!!
By making a donation or joining our team, you will be helping the Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.
As a team, united in our desire to Stop Diabetes, we are asking for your support. Please make a donation to one of our team members or become one of us by joining our team. When we bring together dedicated team members and kind donors, the power we have as a group far outweighs what any of us could do alone.
We are determined to reach our team goal, one rider at a time. So let's get in gear and ride to Stop Diabetes!
