Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
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.
Both of my grandmothers had diabetes and luckily it has not affected future generations in our family, so far. This will be my fouth year of participation. In addition to riding, I am a volunteer helping th ADA of Los Angeles promote and plan the event.
I enjoy cycling and giving back and this is my way to do both at the same time. Some may say it is crazy to ride 100 miles for any reason, which I many not do this year as training has eluded me. But this is year is a new route and venue so it should be interesting and challenging as there is 10,000 feet of climing in doing the 100 mile route.. To me it is a fun, the scenery, challenge, and the opportunity to give back out weigh the suffering of riding 100 miles.
I am committed to ride and raise money in this inspirational event not because 29 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!
