This is my eleventh year of riding in the Tour. The money that we are raising is greatly needed to overcome this disease. If we all don't fight hard to kill it, it will kill many of us. Nearly 30 million people have diabetes and the number keeps on going up! Kids my age have a 1 in 3 chance now of getting diabetes during their lifetime. It is not just you but your children and grand children face this very serious threat. You know people around you who have diabetes. Our country is becoming more aware of the seriousness of diabetes but there are still many who are not aware of the seriousness and consequences.
We need more money to help educate people on prevention and to help those who have the disease. Without it, we can't keep fighting back. Will you please help those people you know with the disease and help me collect as much money as possible to make a great contribution again this year.
This is my eleventh year riding in the Tour de Cure. I do it for the money that is needed and with the hope that there will be a complete victory one day during my lifetime. Will you please help me with a contribution to my ride. It will help get us that much closer to a cure. Please
