Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
This year will be my 6th year participating in the event as a volunteer, 5th year as a registered rider! I will be riding the 20 mile route (2 or 3 times) as Red Rider and as a bike mobile/SAG patrol (Route Marshall) spotting other riders in need of assistance. There are so many of us...family, friends and coworkers, touched by and living with diabetes daily. My father, a type 2, was far too young (57) when I lost him. My children were not able to meet the most awesome grandpa in the world. This disease seems even more aggressive for me now as a type 1 that is insulin dependent. With the beautiful children and family I have been blessed with, I REFUSE TO STOP IN THIS FIGHT AGAINST THIS DISEASE !...
I Especially will battle this disease now and ask you to join me because now this mean disease has picked a fight with my daughter... A beautiful young 16 year old girl that has been active and healthy and should not have to battle this fight ! I can not stand by the sidelines and watch this happen !

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.
I truly appreciate your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
