Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
I am riding on July 28th because the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure is so much more than a cycling event to me. Almost five years ago, I was diagnosed as Pre-Diabetic and now, through diet and exercise, I have managed my health to return to a normal range. Because of my passion and interest in overcoming this disease, I joined the local American Diabetes Association Community Leadership Board in 2015.
In the past four years, I have raised more than $80,000 for the American Diabetes Association and the research, programs and services they fund. I have been named the leading individual fundraiser for the Porltand Tour de Cure over the last 4 years. All of this was made possible because of the generosity demonstrated by people like you.
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.
