2019 Tour de Cure: Garden State

Join Team Red!
Join Team Red!

Team Red - Garden State

Garden State Tour de Cure.  June 23, 2019. 

Need a Team?  Join Team Red!

TEAM RED... for Red Riders (participants with type 1 or type 2 diabetes), their family, friends and anyone else who is looking to join with millions of others that want to Stop Diabetes! Any rider who isn't already on another team can join Team Red.  And being on Team Red means that you will instantly be a part of a community made up of people from all different areas and walks of life. Team Red is a great way to connect with other families supporting a Red Rider and other families that are honoring a loved one with diabetes.

YES! You (and those that support you) can join Team Red, which again is made up of Red Riders AND those who support Red Riders. This is a team for anyone who doesn't already have a team.

YES! If you have family members or friends who are not cyclists and want to participate by walking or running instead of riding, they can still register as a member of Team Red!

Team Red got its start in 2007 when Mari Ruddy started the Red Rider program and quickly discovered the need for a team for everyone supporting their Red Riders and for folks new to Tour de Cure who were looking for a team. From those humble beginnings in 2007, Team Red has now expanded across the country to all Tour de Cure events.

Team Red – Garden State (formerly Team Red Princeton) began in 2011. I am not a Red Rider, but I am the Captain of Team Red – Garden State. My daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2008 at the age of 9. I began riding in the Princeton Tour de Cure that year and rode as an individual rider in 2008, 2009 and 2010. I wanted to do my part to find a cure for diabetes. In 2011, the ADA asked me to form Team Red Princeton and I gladly accepted.
Are you a Red Rider? Do you have a family member or friend with diabetes? Do you just want to do your part to help in the fight to find a cure for diabetes? Then YOU are a candidate to join Team Red!

Thank you for considering joining Team Red or supporting us with a generous donation.
