Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
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.
In 2011, my life changed forever when my son was diagnosed with Juvenile(Type 1) diabetes. Suddenly we were thrust from the world of normalcy to chaos as we tried to learn how to count carbs, test blood sugar and administer insulin. I count it a blessing that today we manage to live a healthy lifestyle with diabetes, but the reality is, there is no permanent cure. I believe the American Diabetes Association is working to change that.
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 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, like me. 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.
I truly appreciate your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
