Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
This is my 7th year riding with Team Dignity in the Tour de Cure and, of all seven years, this one will be dearest to my heart. In the past I said ‘I ride for my dad’ but this year I’ll be riding in memory of him. My dad, Roger L. Hughes, passed on July 6th of this year and I can't think of a better way to honor his memory.
Most of us know someone who suffers from Diabetes but this issue hits very close to home for my husband and me. My dad Roger suffered from Diabetes while he was with us. His suffering is over now but my mother in law and many of our family and friends live with this disease every day. For this reason my husband Richard and I choose to ride for those who don't have a choice in the fight against Diabetes.
Diabetes is a growing problem for our nation, and we have to do more to find a cure. When I was presented with the opportunity to ride in the Tour de Cure I felt it was something I could do to be a small part of a movement that is doing just that.
You can help me make a greater impact in this effort to find a cure for my family and friends and the millions of others who suffer from Diabetes across the U.S.! Make the choice to fight against Diabetes this year by sponsoring me or riding with me virtually on August 15th, 2020.
