Team Red DFW
Team Red DFW is more than a team. We are a TRIBE.
Team Red is a group of people all dedicated to helping the American Diabetes Association in its research, educational programs and advocacy. Team Red is for everyone, whether or not they have diabetes or even know anyone who does.
For years now we've ridden in Tours de Cure and supported the American Diabetes Association's research fundraising, advocacy, and education efforts both locally and nationally.
But what does that mean? Where does that all go?
Think about yourself or that person in your life affected by diabetes. Have you faced discrimination in your school or workplace? Misunderstanding by the public about the fact that you have a disease, not bad lifestyle choices?
I know many of you have dropped off because there isn't a cure yet. And there won't be one if nobody raises funds to help find one. But while we're waiting, we have a lot of minds to change, lives to change, and priorities to influence.
Diabetes ties our friends and families together, and we are stronger as a tribe.
To me at least, that's worth more than the fundraising minimum.
Our team wants to be a leader in changing the future and making a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes. We are committed to participate together and raise money through this inspirational event not just because over 30 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because so many of us personally know some of them, and want to do something about it.
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!
