Wheezers & Geezers V21.0...
Yep - 2018 will be our team's 21st Annual Rochester Tour de Cure for the benefit of the American Diabetes Association's mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all those affected by the disease.
Again in 2017 we were honored, privileged, and humbled to be Rochester's #1 Friends and Family team, raising an astounding team record of $39,378.82!! Our heartfelt thanks go to all our terrific sponsors who give so generously.
Unfortunately our business remains unfinished. The impact of diabetes continues to grow, and is now estimated to include 30 million Americans diagnosed with either Type 1 or Type 2, plus an additional 75 million undiagnosed or "pre-diabetic" indicating that without some change in lifestyle diet and exercise they will develop Type 2 in their lifetime.
The American Diabetes Association provides critical research funding into the prevention and cure of diabetes, research that continues to improve the lives of those with the disease although a "cure" is as of yet elusive. The Association also provides lifestyle support to families with diabetes, and is the leading national advocacy organization for them as well.
For 2018, we've set $41,500.00 as our team goal. In support thereof, I am personally asking every member of Wheezers & Geezers to pledge raising $500, not merely the $200 Association minimum, to this great cause.
Thanks for your past support!
