MeMe's Tour de Cure Web Page!
Welcome in 2020!
This year marks a combination of my 9th year participating and volunteering for Tour! Time flies when you're raising funds!! Thanks to everyone who has supported me since day one. You've helped me raise over $54,000 over the course of my participation!
Tour is Sept 12th and I am trying to reach a goal of $5,000. I need your help now! I have worked really hard over the last few years to get my numbers back in check. My A1c as of Feb 2020 is 5.7%! This is in the pre-diabetic stage! I'm using a CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitor) to help me manage my numbers. I pay $75 a month for 2 sensors. It's a few hundred dollars without insurance.
This is why I ride and why I am fundraising. People with Diabetes need access to affordable insulin, medications and other tools to manage their disease. A cure needs to be found! I need this cure as do several of my friends and family! I have/had several family members and friends with Type 2, Type 1 and Gestational diabetes. Anything you can do will help me get to my goal. Some companies do matches. Please check to see if your company participates in matching your donations since whatever you donate is doubled! Please help me reach my $5,000 goal! Everything helps!
I have also taken on the challenge of Chairing the Recognition and Champions SubCommittee for the Tour de Cure because I want to make it the event of the year so a cure can be found. Take a moment now to decide what you would like to donate. Consider the following and choose an amount that is meaningful to you. Do it for someone you love or someone you don’t know. Your donation is appreciated by everyone who is affected by diabetes. Your donation makes a difference. YOU make a difference.
