Welcome to the Page of John Holladay ("Red Rider", and a "Proud Team Red Member, 2017")
I am riding because the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure is so much more than a cycling event to me. It is my opportunity to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes.
I am committed to ride and raise money in this inspirational event not because 26 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because I personally know some of them, and I want to do something about it. Won't you help me start a chain reaction?
Chances are, you also know someone who has been affected by diabetes and you already know how important it is to stop this disease. By making a donation on my behalf or by joining my team, you will be helping the Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.
With your help, we will fight for a future where a parent does not have to hear that their child has diabetes. A future where an adult does not have to face the uncertain times ahead after receiving a diabetes diagnosis. A future where you and I will know that we had a part in making this possible.
Here is John's Experiences dealing With Diabetes from a Very Young Age:
I have been Diabetic since 21 Months Old, and I have been for over 40 years. When I was first diagnosed at 21 Months Old, my Pediatrician at the time, told my family that I would only live to be 25 Years Old, that this was the Projected Age at the time for the Average Lifespan of A Diabetic. Well Guess what, I have surpassed this by a Long Shot since my family and myself, have been Faithful to God and Jesus and Served them Faithfully both in Church, and Outside of Church.
This past year I have suffered through a major illness with my lung condition, and with God's help I have pulled through this, and will hopefully be riding in Tour de Cure 30 Miles. Will you please consider donating to me, as I help the community in finding a cure for this horrible disease of Diabetes. I will be riding as a Red Rider again this year.
