Participating with Diabetes
Red Riders are people who live with diabetes and participate as cyclists in a Tour de Cure event. Red Striders are those who live with diabetes and participate as a walker or runner in a Tour de Cure event. It's time to celebrate those with diabetes who are being active to stay healthy!
If you have diabetes and register for this event…
YOU are automatically a RED RIDER or RED STRIDER
YOU are the reason we ride, walk and run
YOU are not alone
YOU are going to feel so special on the day of the event as everyone cheers specifically for YOU!
The Tour de Cure recognizes people with diabetes as the HEROES on the day of the event. With hundreds of people who may share a similar story, and hundreds more to support you, being a Red Rider or Red Strider can help with your first mile or your millionth—in your fight to live a healthier life. Riding your bike or walking and running is a great way 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 Red Strider is register for the Tour de Cure as such (on the first page of the register screen). Just click the REGISTER button at the top of the screen to get started. 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!
