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. Last year I was part of the PPH Team and in the picture riding to 75 miles. ------->
This year I proudly have jonied the PHPride team again.
On March 9th, Hillcrest alum and college freshman Kayce Goldberg passed away from diabetes complications. Her death has really struck our community hard and many of our neighbors are planning to ride in the Tour de Cure on PHPride in memory of Kayce.
The money raised at the Tour de Cure not only fund education and advocacy for those who have diabetes — but fund 8 research projects at UT Southwestern — these are research projects that are finding the cause and ultimately a cure for diabetes so that no other family experiences what the Goldberg family has gone through in losing a child to diabetes.
I am committed to ride and raise money in this inspirational event not because 30 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because I personally know some of them, and I want to do something about it. Won’t you help me start a chain reaction?
Chances are, you also know someone 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 or by joining my team, 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.
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!
