Welcome Team Lilly!
On behalf of the Lilly Cycling Club, I would like to invite you to join Team Lilly and participate in the American Diabetes Association’s 2020 Indianapolis Tour de Cure.
This is now a Virtual Event for 2020.
This year the we are focusing on being one team, one Team Lilly. Let's see what kind of impact we can make as we work together to recruit, train and raise the funds to support this important cause. Our goal is to raise $50,000. If we can get 200 participants (and I think we can) then that is $250 for each to raise. With gift matching we can surely reach this goal. So for now let us focus on recruiting. Gather your colleagues, friends, and family and join Team Lilly.
Date - Saturday June 6th
Location - Wherever You Are
Events - Ride, Run, Walk, Peloton, Treadmill any distance you want
Grab your walking/running shoes! Tune up your bike! This virtual event is for all ages.
The Indy Tour event is one of Lilly's signature sponsorship events that offer employees a chance to be active, connect with colleagues, and, most importantly, help people living with diabetes reconnect to what is important in their lives.
ALL EMPLOYEES ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND! FAMILY AND FRIENDS ARE WELCOME TO JOIN!
Lilly employees from throughout the company and across the United States are encouraged to form or join a team. Friends and family members of all ages are welcome to participate. Tour de Cure provides a unique opportunity for participants to:
Connect with each other, through a fun and healthy activity, whether cycling, running or walking; and
Connect with the diabetes community, by supporting the ADA and the millions of people whose lives are affected by diabetes.
This is the only national event that reaches both the occasional rider/runner and the serious athlete.
