Steve’s Warriors began in 2017 in honor of a wonderful man, Steve Langkau. Steve lived with type 1 diabetes for over 60 years. After many years of being chronically ill, Steve passed away in February of 2017. While he was still healthy enough, Steve’s favorite hobby was bike riding. Not only did he ride and race himself, he loved passing down his hobby to family and friends.
In June 2017, family and friends came together to ride and raise money in Steve’s honor at the Saratoga Tour de Cure for the first time. This year, we come together again for the third time to honor the same man, however with bigger goals and aspirations. With the help of our community, we raised $4,800 last year in Steve's name for diabetic research. We are excited to ride for him and raise money and awareness of a cause that affected him and his family so closely. We cannot think of a better way to keep his memory alive and well.
Thank you in advanced to all of those who will help us reach our fundraising goal. Every donation makes such a big difference. The money we raise for the Association funds critical diabetes research, information programs, and advocacy efforts that support the nearly 30 million children and adults in the U.S. with diabetes, and the 86 million with pre-diabetes.
We are determined to reach our team goal, one person at a time. So let's make a difference together!
