Welcome to the Wine Country Valley Tour de Cure! As the team captain of the Castaways we are participating as one of the top 6 fundraising teams out over 100 teams in the Wine Country Tour de Cure in 2019!
In 2018, over 30 million people in the US (9.3% of the population) have diabetes and nearly 90 million people in have prediabetes in the US alone. If current trends continue, 1 in 3 Americans will develop diabetes sometime in their lifetime, and those with diabetes will lose, on average, 10-15 years of their life.*
I participate in this cause on behalf of many of my friends and colleagues impacted by diabetes and my father who was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2017, and my sister in law earlier this year. We are striving to do everything we can to help find a cure for diabetes.
Please help make a difference!
Each dollar we raise will be used in the fight to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
No matter how small or large, your donation will help improve the lives of more than 29 million Americans who suffer from diabetes, and over 250 million abroad, in the hope that future generations can live in a world without this disease. Together, we can all make a difference!
