Welcome to David Carlson's Tour de Cure Web Page!
Support Me in the Greater Milwaukee Tour de Cure!
This will be my 10th year riding in the American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure. I ride for my lovely wife Mary who has Type II diabetes which has caused serious issues with her heart.
The American Diabetes Association funds research looking for a cure for diabetes. They also have programs to help people who have the disease. The Tour de Cure is one of the ways they raise funds for these efforts. This year the Greater Milwaukee Tour de Cure is on Saturday, July 13th in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.
Do you ever wonder if your donation to the American Diabetes Association does any good? Well my "Team Red" teammate, Becca, has Type I diabetes and here is what she says:
"I have benefited from diabetes research myself. For 6 years now, I have worn an external insulin pump that functions as my pancreas to regulate my insulin. There was no such thing when I was diagnosed at age 15. I also wear a continuous glucose sensor which is able to give me real time readings on my blood sugars to help me better control my diabetes."
Sounds like a yes to me!
I have received donations of over $1000 in 8 of the 9 years I have participated in the Tour de Cure for a total of $9843! That is a lot of money! You people are amazing! Thank you! I will set my goal at $1000 again this year, but it is always a scary goal.
It really doesn’t matter how much you donate. Any support I get is always appreciated. It all adds up! And if you don't donate, that's OK. I will still be your friend! If you are like me, you gets hundreds of donation requests every year and YOU have to make the decision of what causes you will give to. I respect your decision.
If you don’t know the drill, you just click on the “Donate to Me” button at the top of the page. It is really easy to donate with your credit card. And you can opt out of mailings from the ADA. Still, if you would rather provide the funds to me and have me make the donation (and I know some of you do), you know how to get a hold of me.
Thank you for your consideration!
Together we can stop diabetes!
