Participating with Diabetes

Red Riders and Striders are children and adults who have type 1 or type 2 diabetes that participate in a Tour de Cure + Step Out Walk event. It's time to celebrate those with diabetes are being active to stay healthy!

If you have diabetes and register for this event…

  • YOU are automatically a RED RIDER (cycling) or a RED STRIDER (walking). (please remember to indicate that you are a Red Rider/Strider when registering; and let us know if you forgot to do so)
  • YOU are the reason we walk, run and ride.
  • YOU are not alone.
  • YOU are going to feel so special on the day of the event as everyone cheers specifically for YOU!

The American Diabetes Association recognizes riders and striders with diabetes as the HEROES on the day of the event.  With hundreds of participants who may share a similar story, and hundreds more to support you, being a Red Rider or a Red Strider can help with your first mile or your millionth—in your fight to live a healthier life. Walking, running and riding are all great ways to stay in shape and exercise is extremely important for everyone with diabetes.

All you need to do to be recognized as a Red Rider or a Red Strider is register for the Tour de Cure as a Red Rider or Red Strider.  You will receive special recognition on the day of the event and you will be so glad you made the decision to no longer hide that you live with this disease every day.  You work hard to stay healthy, so let’s celebrate your accomplishments!
