BLOB - Big Lads on Bicycles
We ride because we are proud to do our part to Stop Diabetes. Bob Cook and I rode in our first Tour de Cure in 2012. Building on the success from our first ride, a few more friends joined me last year (Brian and Dan) and we formed a team - BLOB (Big Lads on Bicycles) BLOB raised over $7,200 last year finishing 17th out of 85 teams in fundraising (with only 4 members!).
This year BLOB has expanded! We’ve grown from four riders in 2013 to FIFTEEN in 2014! I'm amazed at how quickly we’ve grown and the support we have received. We’ve also altered the name of BLOB to reflect our seven female riders… BLOB - Big Lads on Bicycles / Bodacious Ladies on Bicycles. In addition, we also have three Red Riders (riders with diabetes) on the team - Ronni, Jean, and me - which makes this ride even more significant. I am unbelievably proud that I have 14 other riders helping me raise money to fight diabetes. BLOB members are riding the 31 or 62 mile course this year and we hope to raise over $13,000 as a team.
By making a donation or joining our 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.
As a team, united in our desire to Stop Diabetes, we are asking for your support. Please make a donation to one of our team members or become one of us by joining our team. When we bring together dedicated team members and kind donors, the power we have as a group far outweighs what any of us could do alone.
We are determined to reach our team goal, one rider at a time. So let's get in gear and ride to Stop Diabetes!
Thank you for your support!
Paul (and the rest of BLOB)
