Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
Our team, Gurdie's Jetpack Peddlers, is named after my mom who unexpectedly passed away in February 2013 as a result of Diabetes. At a young age of 69, Marcia (her nickname is Gurdie) was an amazing mother of 4, grandmother of 12, and great-grandmother of 5. Only 223 days later, Marcia's sister Susan also passed away due to complications as a result of 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 my mom unexpectedly passed away due to this terrible disease, 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!
