I ride because my father-in-law has diabetes type 2 on its early stages and want to help raise funds to benefit him and people like him. I know several friends with diabetes type 2 one of them got diagnosed very recently. I also want to ride to support the millions of diabetes patients in the US and abroad as I am seeing the effects of this disease and how it affects their daily lives. Every little help counts.
I'll be doing my part by cycling 100 miles in the upcoming American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure fund-raising event. I would be honored to have you sponsor me on this ride. Please select the "Donate to Jorge" link. For locals to Northern California you can come join me on the beautiful and challenging 100 mile course or if you prefer shorter rides do the 62 miles the 30 miles or even the short 10 miles! Just click on "Join Jorge's team" above! Help make a difference in the lives of MILLIONS of diabetes patients including my father-in-law and my close friends. They will appreciate your sponsorship very much!
Each mile I ride and the funds I raise will be used to further the mission of the American Diabetes Association in the fight to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. Together we can all make a difference!
Thank you for sponsoring me! If you decide to join my team welcome!
