Welcome to the Craig Ciarlelli Tour de Cure Web Page!
The worlds best athletes recently congregated in Rio to compete to win Gold, Silver and Bronze medals.
The olympic athlete's journey to Rio took years of training, dedication and determination but they did not do it alone. The opportunity to compete in Rio required the help of supportive parents, good coaches and trainers and the encouragement of friends; a SUPPORT TEAM.
Defeating diabetes cannot be done alone!
Riding in the Tour de Cure bike race does not lead to competing in Rio but it can lead to winning the "GOLD"! "GOLD" as in helping to find a cure for diabetes. Those of us who ride in the Tour de Cure bike race as Red Riders are bikers who have diabetes and we need a SUPPORT TEAM too!
The SUPPORT TEAM is the rock that provides encouragement to us as we ride up and down the mountains of Colorado. The SUPPORT TEAM is the lifeblood that provides a critical component for research, MONEY. The SUPPORT Team is the foundation that supports the American Diabetes Association help more than 23 million Americans who have diabetes, not to mention the more than 5 million who don't even know they have it.
On September 9th, 2017 in Parker, Colorado I will be thanking you and other members of my SUPPORT TEAM during the exciting and demanding 62 miles I will be covering in this year’s Tour de Cure race. Your help is "GOLD" because it helps us get closer to finding a cure for diabetes.
