Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
I am riding because the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure is so much more than a cycling event to me. It is my opportunity to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes which includes me!
I am committed to ride and raise money in this inspirational event not because 26 million people in the United States have diabetes, but also because I have type 2 diabetes, and I want to do something about it. I enjoy cycling and thought this would be a great opportunity to raise money, awareness, and provide me with a goal to train for and complete a 40 mile ride.
I was able to raise more than $4,500 through the generosity of friends/family/co-workers in last year's ride and finished as the #1 fundraiser. For a lot of reasons, I am late in registering this year and with only a few days prior to the ride I am making a push to get into the top 10 fundraisers in 2017. I need your help to do so. This is my only ask - I promise!
Chances are, you also know someone else who has been affected by diabetes and you already know how important it is to stop this disease. By making a donation on my behalf you will be helping the Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure. If nothing else, you will also provide me with personal drive to accomplish this ride in hopes that it springs me into training for and completing other rides.
With your help, we will fight for a future where a parent does not have to hear that their child has diabetes. A future where an adult does not have to face the uncertain times ahead after receiving a diabetes diagnosis. A future where you and I will know that we had a part in making this possible.
I truly appreciate your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
