from Toby . . .
Please join me in supporting the American Diabetes Association, ADA. Diabetes is a significant fiscal burden with the annual cost of diagnosed diabetes passing $327 billion, a 26% increase in just five years. With high prevalence, it is not an unknown disease in most families.
The ADA has been active in addressing specific needs of youth with T2D (type 2 diabetes) and calling for affordable insulin for all who need it. ADA works to educate, support research and advocate for those at risk due to diabetes.
Several years ago, a few of us formed "Sweet Spokes", a team to participate in the Twin Cities Tour de Cure, a bicycle and walking event. We are a small team but fundraise with a purpose. I work tirelessly (see photo) and we aim to deliver meaningful donations to the ADA prior to their Twin Cities event on June 1, 2019. I am proud to ride with this team and invite you to trust the ADA to make good use of our donations.
Please give generously, stay active and understand your contributions are truly appreciated.
