Be a Leader
If you're ready to do more than just register and ride, we encourage you to become a Champion to Stop Diabetes! Anyone can become a Champion, and the impacts they make are felt far and wide! Those riders who raise $1,000 or more are Champions to Stop Diabetes.
Champions help the American Diabetes Association to: train school personnel to keep children with diabetes safe at school; provide assistance to individuals who are being discriminated against because of their diabetes; provide support to people who are newly diagnosed with diabetes; and so much more. In short, funds raised by Champions directly impact some of our most important work.
