Welcome to my Tour de Cure Page
I have joined the 2019 American Diabetes Association Rochester Tour de Cure, and the “Wheezers & Geezers” Team, in their fundraising support of the ADA’s efforts to prevent and cure diabetes, and to improve the lives of all those affected by it. After a number of years as a “supporter”, it is time to step up my game, get off by butt and take a more active role in the Tour (Yes I will be physically moving… walking though and not cycling… I fall over...).
The ADA estimates there are more than 100 million Americans impacted by diabetes, whether Type I, Type II, or pre-diabetes. Chances are someone you know and love in your world of family and friends is affected in some way.
The ADA leads the battle against the deadly consequences of diabetes and fights for those affected by diabetes by funding research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes, and provides advocacy to those denied their rights because of diabetes… and due to the corporate sponsors who underwrite the Rochester Tour de Cure 100% of the funds raised go into research.
When you donate:
- You spread awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes
- You advocate for a child discriminated against in school because of diabetes
- You fund life-saving research
- You provide access to community programs and free resources that help those living with diabetes
As you consider your 2018 year end charitable contributions and / or your plans for 2019 I hope you will consider a donation to support the ADA's efforts with a donation by selecting the "Donate to Me" button. Your donation will fund research for a cure that will help save lives, perhaps that of someone you love!
Thank you for making a generous donation to this cause that is so important to me.
