Welcome to Team Gilbert's fundraising page!
Diabetes sucks, and Tour de Cure® is trying to fix that, so please consider donating to (or joining!) our team so we can crush this fundraising goal and make an impact on some lives.
A certain family member of ours who would never approve of a charity in his name (but who, fortunately enough, doesn’t have a Facebook account) deals with this disease. I don’t know all that much about Diabetes, but I know it kills people, it’s expensive to have, and that it sucks.
If you want to donate, awesome! If you want to join Team Gilbert and ride the ~65 miles with Dave & I, awesome! If you don't want to do either, please reconsider! Diabetes is worth caring about and throwing a few bucks at a good cause isn’t going to hurt as bad as you think it will. My un-named brother would do it for you, I can promise you that.
Today alone over 4,100 people will be diagnosed so if you don't already know someone with Diabetes, chances are you eventually will. More than 30 million adults and children in the US are living with this disease and any money you can donate to our team will help to get that number down.
And now here's what the ADA suggested I post to our page...
Help us reach our goal! When you donate:
- You spread awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes.
- You advocate for a child with diabetes to have the same learning opportunities at school.
- You fund life-saving research.
- You provide access to community programs and free resources that help those living with diabetes.
By participating in the Tour de Cure, I hope to inspire others to join me and raise money.
Thank you for making a generous donation to this cause that is so important to me, my family and countless others.
