Welcome to My Tour de Cure - Nadja's Journey 2020
As you may know, I live with diabetes. Because finding a cure and better treatments is of utmost important to me personally, I am participating in the Tour de Cure and riding as a Red Rider, someone who rides with diabetes. Looking forward to this coming year, I started my journey a bit over 6 years and excited to continue riding.
The Tour de Cure is so much more than an event to me. It's my opportunity (maybe yours too?) to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes.
The Tour is a ride, not a race, with routes designed for everyone from the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist.
Riding in tour shows me that beyond my own support system there are thousands of compassionate people dedicated to fighting diabetes by riding and raising money as a community. There are highs and lows, quite literally, what I've learned is that behind every person with diabetes, there is an amazing support system. My family, friends, and my medical team make me realize that I am not alone. 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.
Over 29 million children and adults in this country are diagnosed with diabetes, so the mission we have is an urgent one. Everything we do forms the underpinning for that mission: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. I've committed to ride and raise money in this inspirational event not because the millions of people in the United States have diabetes but because I personally know some of them and I want to do something about it. These numbers are continuously increasing as years go by. Won't you help me start a chain reaction?
Today, I am asking you to join my fight. Will you make a donation in support of my Tour de Cure fundraising efforts? I truly appreciate your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
You can support me by making a donation. Your generosity would mean so much to me!
