"I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion."
This is the Pedal Pup motto, because we realize that it is through our actions together that we make the biggest difference. The Pedal Pups try to embody all the qualities inherent in our canine friends: friendliness, dependability, loyalty and altruism. We use the miles put in on our bikes to raise awareness and life saving funds for the causes we believe deeply in. As a team we've raised over $220,000 in the last three years. We've participated in rides and triathlons funding much needed research and services for those living with HIV as well as Luekemia & Lymphoma.
This year we are commited and excited to be supporting the leader in the fight agains diabetes, the American Diabetes Association. 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 want a cure!
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 raising money through this inspirational event because the diabetes epidemic is on the rise and we want to do something about the toll it is taking on this country.
This year, you can run, ride or walk with our team at Tour de Cure! If you can't join our team, support us with a donation! 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.
When we bring together dedicated team members and generous 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 make a difference together!
