2019 Tour de Cure Colorado

Team AlliCATErs rides again!

On Martin Luther King Weekend 2016 Cate Logan was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes (T1D) at the tender age of 10.  She had spent the day skiing with her race team, but had been feeling awful for the past couple of months.  A trip to the Winter Park clinic led to a night at Children's Hospital in Aurora.  That day has changed her life.  She has learned to cope with her condition, but it is not easy.  She puts up with her parents texting her in the middle of class telling her to eat or take more insulin as her blood glucose levels take her on a Glucoster ride (typicaly she has already dealt with the issue and just rolls her eyes at Dad).  She has to calculate the carbs in everything she eats and bolus with insulin to cover her food.  She needs to eat and manage her basal inslulin delivery during swim, ski, mountain biking, climbing pratices, or while traveling to ski races or vacations.  Her father has told her she needs to figure out how to wake up at night when her BG levels go high or low as he does not plan to go to college with her!  She overcomes these obstacles with the help of tools such as a Continuous Glucose Meter (CGM) and an Insulin Pump, and by being thoughtful and dillegent and planning her activities and what she eats and how she doses every minute of every day.  

Did you know that nearly 1,500,000 Americans like Cate live every day of thier lives with Type One Diabetes and another 30,000,000 (that is THIRTY MILLION) Americans live with Type Two Diaetes!

While the tools that have been developed to manage T1D from years of investment in research makes Cate's life possible, Wouldn't it be AWSOME if she could just go out to Pizza with her friends and not worry about spending the night correcting for her meal!  Wouldn't it be Amazing if she could go on a camping trip and not have to worry about bringing extra insulin, pumps, CGMs, Tack Away Wipes, needles... to manage her blood glucose levels!

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) will host the 2019 Tour De Cure on Saturday September 7th 2019 in Parker Colorado.

Team AlliCATErs has ridden the Tour De Cure for the past three years and plans to do so again in September.  There will be bike rides ranging from 25 to 100 miles, a 5K walk/run, and other fun events through out the day.  If you would like to support Cate in her efforts to raise money to fund research towards better treatments of her condition and hopefully eventually leading to a cure for Type One and Type Two Diabetes, please consider joining Team AlliCATErs for one of the events, or if you are not interested in a long day in the saddle, please consider donating toward Cate or one of her team mates' rides.
