Thank you so much for your tremendous support of the Manning & Napier Tour de Cure! This year's event was one for the record books! It was a perfect day full of smiles, inspirational moments and moving stories, and one we’ll never forget. We couldn't have done it without you!
More than 1,835 participants, 300 volunteers, sponsors and spectators celebrated the day and together we are on pace to raise more than $1 million to fund critical research, advocacy efforts, programs and education to support all children and adults living with diabetes.
Your efforts have also helped Rochester hold its spot as the #1 Tour in the nation for the second year running! Additional thanks to the sponsors and in-kind donors whose support helps with costs of the event, the volunteer leadership that worked all year to plan the perfect day, and the hundreds of volunteers who come out and execute. It’s a long day but it flies by when you're having so much fun!
The event may be over, but we are still charging forward. Here are some important updates and reminders:
