Huggers Ski Club
Our Huggers team is making a difference. You can too!
Our team is supporting the American Diabetes Association (ADA) because together we will make a difference. We want to inspire, empower, and find a cure for those suffering with 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.
Type 2 diabetes is a lifestyle disease, mainly cause by the Standard American Diet. Our Huggers team is working to forge a collaboration between the local American Diabetes Association office and Rochester Lifestyle Medicine to make the Rochester community more aware of what we all can do to avoid Type 2 diabetes and how to manage the disease more effectively if you have it. Our Huggers team is being proactive to use the money we raise in the most beneficial way to help fight diabetes!
In the 2019 Tour de Cure, the Huggers Team had 31 members that raised over $17,000 in donations!
In 2020, our team goal in 2020 is to have 50 teammates and raise over $17K. This year you can bike, run, or walk with our team! That's right - you can be a walker and be an active member of our team! Come join us at the Tour de Cure to have the most fun day - with excercise, good food, music, and a party all day long!
By joining our team, you will be helping the ADA 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.
Please Join our Team! Let's make a difference together!
