Welcome to Russ' Fundraising Page
I am asking you to support me in the Tour de Cure® because finding a cure for diabetes means so much to me. In 2004, my little sister, Amy, was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes at the age of 10, and she has shown ever since what it means to be brave. She does things on a daily basis that make me squirm -- all just to keep living the life I so often take for granted.
I'm biking 60 miles August 10 (farther than I've ever biked). Doing that and asking for your financial support is the least I can do to help fight the disease and show Amy how much she inspires me. My wife, Kathleen, and I will match $500 of your donations! That's right, we'll donate an additional $500 if you can help me raise $500.
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
By participating in the Tour de Cure, I hope to inspire others to join me and raise money. Thank you for making a generous donation to this cause that is so important to me.
