Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
I am riding because the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure is so much more than a cycling event to me. It is my opportunity to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of the 29 million people in the United States who have diabetes.
Where does the money go?
- The ADA provides grants to researchers to learn more about the causes of diabetes, better treatment of the disease, and ultimately to find a cure.
- The ADA works to improve the quality of life for people who have diabetes through educational programs, literature, and lifestyle programs and services.
- The ADA also serves the community through various support groups and also keeps health care professionals up to date on the latest developments in treatments.
- The ADA advocacy team fights for the rights of people with diabetes against discrimination, as well as, increasing public and government awareness while ultimately working for better health care services and increased national funding for diabetes research.
- November is American Diabetes Month. For years, the American Diabetes Association has used this month as an opportunity to raise awareness of the disease and its serious complications.
- Camp Aspire allows nearly 150 children to experience traditional camping activities during a week-long day camp. The youngsters not only get to ride horses, swim, rock-climb and more, they also learn valuable skills in caring for their diabetes.
- Annual Community Forum. This highly anticipated yearly event is free to the public and is a showcase of the latest diabetes information.
- Safe at School. The Association's Safe at School campaign helps students with diabetes start each school day knowing their diabetes needs will be safely met so they can take advantage of all school has to offer.
