Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
Family and Friends,
For the last four years I have participated in the Silicon Valley Tour de Cure. The first year I rode the 50 km route and the following years the 25 K route joined by my lovely wife Star. With the help of my friends and family we have raised over $4000 for Diabetes research and programs to help those affected by this disease. This year I am proud to once again be riding with Team Red Silicon Valley for the 2019 Silicon Valley Tour de Cure.
I plan on riding the 25 K route with Star again this year.
The Tour de Cure are cycling events held around the country to raise money for the America Diabetes Association for research for a cure for diabetes as well as education and support for those aflicted with the disease. Since getting into cycling because of heart disease related problems a few years back I have been looking for new challenges and the Tour de Cure is an opportunity to challenge myself for a worthwhile cause.
29 million people in the United States have diabetes, I personally know some of them, they are friends and family.
Chances are, you also know someone who has been affected by diabetes too, 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 have a real chance 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 understand that this is just one of many worthy causes out there and that money can get pretty tight (I also know it can sometimes be uncomfortable figuring out how much to give).
So...if you can please consider donating just $10 (the price of a fancy coffee drink and a pastry at a cafe) to sponsor me and my participation in the Tour de Cure
I truly appreciate your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
