Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
For the past twelve years Kivort Steel has sponsored a team in the local Tour de Cure bike ride to help raise money for the American Diabetes Association. Last year, through the admirable work of our 120 team members, the Kivort Steel Cycling Team raised $170,000!!! I am very proud to report that we were the top fundraising team in New York State for the eighth year in a row. An even greater accomplishment, Kivort Steel was the number one fundraising team in the entire United States out of eighty-five tours nationwide!!! The Kivort Steel Cycling Team has now raised over $1,100,000.00 for the ADA since we started our team in 2007.
I was drawn to this event because my brother, Michael Kivort, has lived with type 1 diabetes for most of his adult life. The more I’ve learned about his daily hardships, the more I’ve felt that it is important to get involved. Participating in this event is one way that I can help.
The money we raise has funded some incredible advances in Diabetes research. For those living with Type 1 Diabetes, the quality of their lives has improved immeasurably with the invention of devices like Continuous Glucose Monitors and Insulin pumps. However, this is NOT a cure.
Until a cure is found, Kivort Steel will continue to support the Tour and the ADA!
Training to ride on the day of the event is a physical challenge. However, the real challenge for me is raising as much money as possible for the American Diabetes Association.
By making a donation or joining our team, you will be helping the American Diabetes Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.
Thank you in advance for your time and help. Together we will make a huge difference in the lives of people affected by diabetes!!!
