Team Red SWFL
WE’RE MAKING A DIFFERENCE. YOU CAN TOO.
Our team is supporting the American Diabetes Association because we want to make a difference. We want to lead. We want to inspire. We want to empower!
We are teaming up now to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes. We are committed to participate together and raise money through this inspirational event not just because nearly 30 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because we personally know some of them, and want to do something about it.
If you can't join us, support us !
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 vision of a life free of diabetes and all its burdens; we are asking for your support. Please make a donation to one of our team members or join us by registering on 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 person at a time. So let's get in gear and make a difference together!
Having done these for the past 12 years, I'm obviously a huge fan of both this event and of the Red Rider Program. I know that the American Diabetes Association raises awareness and supports many programs for people with diabetes. Our fundraising efforts support the American Diabetes Association's efforts to find the CURE for diabetes! I'm all for that good thing! Become a Fan of the Tour on Facebook as well at -

Help! Pedal Power Really Does Work!
Each mile we ride, and each bit of the funds the team helps to raise will be used in the fight to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
Please help and sponsor us!
The power of 5. When I was a kid a visit to the doctor was five dollars. Quite a few years later and that same five dollar bill won't cover breakfast let alone a Doctor's visit. Still, a single five dollar bill has the power to heal, to help change lives. If each of you viewing this page were to donate just $5 to raise money for the American Diabetes Association, we could make a huge impact.
THAT is the power of 5 - the power of 10 would exceed most any of the team members goals for the year, think what the power of 25 or 50 might achieve! Still whether you donate or not, thanks for your time and I’ll just hope for your donation as well.
Finding a cure takes Money & Research
Help us get them funded - those researcher, doctors, grad students and undergrads that benefit from the grants funding research that may help unlock the key to why the bodies of those with Type 1 just don't produce insulin, or why those with Type 2 can no longer use insulin efficiently. Who knows, maybe the donations made will be the one that unlocks the mystery? Those of us with diabetes can only urge everyone to try and be proactive enough to find that key which may unlock it all.
