Welcome to Jim's Page
Hello Friends and Family
The 2017 Oregon Tour de Cure fundraiser sponsored by the American Diabetes Association will be held Saturday, July 29. It will be the ninth time I will have participated in this bike riding event. This year Leanne will be riding in the Tour as well. I am hoping I can keep up. I can't wait until Maren is old enough to ride with us! My training has begun and I can tell you it does not get any easier. Leanne and I will be scheduled for the 29 mile ride again this year.
Thank you for your support in the past. The goal remains the same, to find a cure for and improve the treatment of diabetes. My family has benefited greatly from the work done by the American Diabetes Association. Both of my brothers are diabetic as well. Their treatment has been much more effective as a result of the great improvements made with the help of the American Diabetes Association.
The Tour de Cure raises funds to support efforts to prevent and cure diabetes, as well as to improve the lives of all of those who live with diabetes. Nearly 30 million people battle diabetes every minute, of every day. Every 23 seconds, someone new is diagnosed with diabetes.
Please help again this year to support the research and the programs of the American Diabetes Association. I hope to see you on July 29th at Aber Glen Park in Hillsboro.
Thank You for your support!
