Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
Support Me in Tour de Cure!
Once again, I am participating in the American Diabetes Association's annual Tour de Cure event this year. I am asking you to join me in the effort to Stop Diabetes by making a contribution to support my ride.
Our family has decided that sitting back and doing nothing to fight this disease.....is NOT acceptable. Together, we have supported the ADA Tour de Cure since the summer of 2005 when we formed the "Friends of Jessie" team. The team was formed almost immediately after Jessica was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in November of 2004. Since our first TDC ride in 2005 the Friends of Jessie team has been the top fundraising family team of every Pittsburgh, PA Tour de Cure! To date, our team has raised in excess of $200,000!! Almost as important, our team has helped to raise awareness of how truly difficult diabetes can be to manage and the awful affects the disease has on the people who suffer from it and their families.
The dollars we raise for the American Diabetes Association fund research, provide services, and give voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes. I believe in the work they do, and I invite you to join me in this effort. More than 29 million Americans live with diabetes, and your support can and will make a difference in their lives.
Please help by making a donation - large or small - to support the work of the American Diabetes Association. Or, why not join me on the day of the event? Become a participant and side by side, as teammates, we can work together to Stop Diabetes!
Whatever you can give will help! I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.
Thank you for making a generous contribution to this cause that is so important to me!
