Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
This will be my sixth year as member of Paige's Pilots. Just like everyone else, the ADA has also been greatly affected by COVID-19 and been forced to make many cuts. As such this will probably be the last year that Paige's Pilots has the Portland, OR Tour de Cure to ride in. We also have the very acheivable goal of raising $250,000 as a team since 2012. Even though the ride has gone virtual and we will all be riding on our own, I have decided to participate in the final ride and help reach our goal.
While fundraising some of you have shared stories of the people you know who live with diabetes, many I was previously unaware of. If you know of anyone you think would like to donate please get them intouch with me or send them to my donation page, http://main.diabetes.org/goto/davidedmonds
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.
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!
