2019 Tour de Cure: Chicagoland

Team Joe Nedza

WE RIDE.   WE DONATE.   WE VOLUNTEER.   WE RAISE FUNDS.   WE RAISE AWARENESS.

On June 2, 2019 we'll be riding in the Tour de Cure: Chicagoland ride in Aurora!!  Please support us with a donation by selecting the "Donate" button for the team or any team member!  Our efforts will help set the pace in the fight against diabetes.  


Team Joe Nedza was started by Bill Nedza, Joe's son, to continue Bill's support of the American Diabetes Association, which began in 2003. Bill had heard about Tour de Cure, and being a cyclist who had family members with diabetes, he got involved riding the events, fundraising, and volunteering. In 2014 Bill took on the position of Chairperson of the Chicagoland Tour de Cure Volunteer Planning Committee, and that year the Chicagoland Tour was #1 of all the Tours in the country in percentage growth of funds raised and percentage of rider growth.


On August 31st of 2010, Joe, who after many years of living with and fighting against Type 2 diabetes, passed away from a combination of physical complications. We know he would have lived longer had he not had to battle the effects of diabetes for so many years. Every time Bill finished a Tour de Cure the first call he made was to his Dad, and his first words were "well, how did you do?", because Bill always had set a goal for the ride so he could challenge himself. Now his first call is to his Mom, Joan, who also suffers from Type 2 diabetes, and he tells her how the ride went. She is a great supporter not only for Bill but for the fight against diabetes -- and she's a great example of how healthy living can help a person deal with the Type 2 diabetes. 

In 2017 Bill's family genetics caught up with him, and in spite of living an active, healthy lifestyle, he too was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.  

We're teaming up to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes. We're committed to participate together and raise money through this inspirational event not just because nearly 30 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because we personally know many, many 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'll be helping the ADA provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes, fund critical research for a cure and treatments, promote and expand advocacy, and help find a cure!!!!  We are asking for your support. Please make a donation to one of our team members or join us by registering on 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 person at a time. So let's get in gear and make a difference together!
