Welcome to the 2015 Oregon/SW Washington Tour de Cure !
Thank you for your incredible support of the 2015 Oregon/SW Washington Tour de Cure!
Over 750 riders and volunteers took part in a rainy Tour de Cure and helped us raise nearly $400,000 (and counting) to Stop Diabetes. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to funding a cure for diabetes. Our mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes is made possible through your efforts. We certainly couldn't do this without you!
There's still several weeks left to help us reach our overall goal to raise $550,000. Go the extra mile with these three easy steps.
- Follow up with your current and past donors. Send a short email update about completing your ride and the experience you had riding for a cure. Let them know that you can still accept donations for the next few weeks.
- Complete your company matching gifts. Also, remind your donors they can apply for matching gifts through their company to help double their donations to you. Please be sure your name and "Tour de Cure Oregon" is noted on any matching gifts.
- Send in final donations. Checks and cash can be sent in or dropped off at our office at 4380 SW Macadam Ave., Suite 210, Portland, OR 97239. Donations for 2015 will be accepted and put towards your Thank You Gift total through August 31. You can also continue to add your offline donations to your Participant Center to watch your fundraising progress bar grow.
You still have time to qualify for Thank You Gifts by continuing your fundraising efforts through August 31st. (You will receive your Thank You Gift certificate mid-September. We will send more info on post event Thank You Gifts via email so be sure to read your Tour de Cure email or check the Tour de Cure Oregon website for updates.
