Wheezers & Geezers
2020 will be the 23rd Rochester Tour de Cure for your team, the Wheezers & Geezers. Sponsors of our 2020 Tour generated an astounding $56,794 for the benefit of the American Diabetes Association. All of this goes to the ADA’s mission to prevent and cure diabetes, and to improve the lives of all those affected by the diabetes. We are truly honored to have this fantastic support of sponsors.
And while the 2020 Tour de Cure will be "virtual" due to the global pandemic, diabetes remains the healthcare crisis of our time. The ADA estimates there are more than 100 million Americans impacted by diabetes, whether Type I, Type II, or pre-diabetes. This latter category - those who are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes and heart disease within a decade - continues to grow. Many are not even aware of their condition or of their risks, so I encourage everyone to take the ADA's risk test for themselves. You can find it here: http://tinyurl.com/pp9cswj
The ADA leads the battle against the deadly consequences of diabetes and fights for those affected by diabetes by funding research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes, and provides advocacy to those denied their rights because of diabetes. (For example, check out: http://www.diabetes.org/living-with-diabetes/parents-and-kids/diabetes-care-at-school/)
ADA-funded research is making progress toward a cure. Please continue those efforts with a donation by selecting the "Click Here to Sponsor Me" button. You will be funding research for a cure that will help save lives, perhaps that of someone you love!
Wheezers & Geezers are not taking a pause in the effort to fight diabetes, This year our goal is $60,000 to build on last year’s amazing result. Every dollar helps to fund for research into the cure and prevention of diabetes, and to provide support to all the millions of people affected by diabetes.
Future generations CAN live in a world without this disease. Together, we can achieve this goal. Thank you for your commitment and support.
