Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
I am riding for my 13 year old niece, Josie. She was diagnosed type 1 diabetes when she was 5 1/2. We figure she has endured 15,000 finger pricks to check her blood sugar since then. So there you go, it's personal. I am riding to raise money to find a cure for a brave, awesome, brilliant little girl.
I know YOU know someone with diabetes. Come ride on our team. Anyone can ride and it will be a fun day. If you can't ride, PLEASE consider a gift of $10 or more. Most of the money stays in Hampton Roads, going to EVMS for research, so you help the local economy too! PLEASE join me!!!!
I am committed to ride and raise money in this inspirational event not because 29 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!
