Thank you so much for your tremendous support of the Tour de Cure: NOVA! Your passion, commitment and energy made the day a huge success, despite the challenging weather. We couldn't have done it without you!
Participants, volunteers, sponsors and spectators all came together to raise close to $200,000 to fund critical research, advocacy efforts, programs and education to support all children and adults living with diabetes.
The event may be over, but we are still charging forward. Here are some important updates and reminders:
