Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
This will be my 5th Tour de Cure! Thanks to ALL of the incredible people who have supported me over the first four years, the ADA is $18,578 richer. In honor of my 5th Tour, I have set my 2019 goal to $6,422. This will get me to $25K over 5 years, $5,000 average! It is not lost on me how challenging it can be to support important causes, so I will challenge myself to match at least 10% of all donations for 2019!
Diabetes runs on my father's side of the family with diagnosis later on in life. Since I am no longer a spring chicken as my hairline indicates, I am cognizant of what the future may hold for me.
However, I ride each year in support of those currently battling Diabetes whether young or old, Type 1 or Type 2, friends, family or strangers. The cost to control this disease can be life changing. In fact, there are some who ration medication due to cost, putting themselves in harm's way. No one should have to deal with these issues.
Chances are, you or someone you know has been affected by Diabetes and you already know how important it is to stop this disease. By making a donation on my behalf, you will be helping the ADA provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure. We have the awesome Camp Aspire locally for kids to gain their independence in spite of their Diabetes!
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!
