I am participating in the American Diabetes Association's annual Tour de Cure event this year - in honor of my mother friends and co-workers living with Diabetes. I am also riding for those that fought Diabetes for years and are no longer with us. My list for whom I ride in honor and memory are:
1. David Perry - memoreum 2. Leroy Perry - memoreum 3. Gene Lightsey - memoreum 4. Becky Perry - honor - current winner against the disease 5. Terry Shaeffer - honor - current warrior against the disease 6. Coworkers - honor - inspiration for us all to always fight and never give up. 7. The Great and Powerful OZ (dear friend Ozzie Judah) - honor - champion against the disease
I am asking you to join me in the effort to Stop Diabetes by making a contribution to support my ride.
The dollars we raise for the American Diabetes Association fund research provide services and give voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes. I believe in the work they do and I invite you to join me in this effort. More than 25 million Americans live with diabetes and your support can and will make a difference in their lives.
Please help by making a donation - large or small - to support the work of the American Diabetes Association. Or why not join me on the day of the event Become a participant and side by side as teammates we can work together to STOP DIABETES!
Whatever you can give will help! I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.
Thank you on behalf of myself and those we stand with who fight.
