We'll see you on Saturday!

Event Info Pic

We look forward to celebrating our Living Red Participants (riders, runner, and walkers with type 1 or type 2 diabetes), Champions (participants who raised $1,000 or more) and all our teams and participants on October 20! Tour de Cure is a celebration of your hard work and dedication in the fight to end diabetes and all its burdens.

Please note that all activities are being moved inside the covered pavilions. Team tents are now team “corrals” and all the post-event festivities will continue as planned including the health and wellness area, live music, beer garden, photo booth, etc.

Below you will find all the information you need to know about what to expect on event day.

DFW Tour de Cure
Southfork Ranch
3700 Hogge Dr, Parker, TX, 75002

Important Route Updates:  Unfortunately, mother nature has washed out the main road accessing all of our cycling routes for tomorrow's event. As a result, we are canceling the cycling portion of the Tour de Cure.

However, we are still moving forward with the DFW Tour de Cure's 5K run/walk and post-event festival. If you planned on riding, please consider joining the run or walk.

Invite your friends and family for the after party to celebrate all of your accomplishments and to enjoy live music, lunch provided by the Texas Beef Council, our beer garden, massages, health and wellness expo, kids activities and much more!

Reminder:  All participants must raise the fundraising minimum of $200 for adults and $50 for kids 12 and under, in order to participate on event day. Participants who are living with diabetes must meet the minimum in order to receive their Red Apparel item. Cash, checks, or credit card donations will be accepted at the registration tent on the day of the event.

Parking: Due to recent weather, parking will be extremely limited and for this reason, please carpool with your team members or friends and family. Parking can be accessed through Gate 1 and once you have parked, please follow the signs to the event (about a three-minute walk). Unfortunately, there will be no VIP parking due to the weather.

Weather:  Diabetes doesn't stop for bad weather and neither does the Tour de Cure - WE RIDE, RUN & WALK RAIN OR SHINE!  Please check the forecast, dress, and pack accordingly. If any changes occur, we will post updates to our website and Facebook.

Recognition Gifts: All participants who meet the $200 fundraising minimum ($50 for kids 12 and under), will receive an event day t-shirt and finisher medal after you complete your route. If you fundraised $500+, you qualify for additional recognition gifts. In order to receive your $500+ recognition gift on event day, you needed to meet the qualifying fundraising level and complete the recognition gift survey by September 21. You can retrieve your recognition gift at the registration tent after you complete your route.

Any participant who reaches a qualifying fundraising level after September 21 will receive their recognition gift 4-6 weeks post event. Your local ADA staff will work with you directly to select your recognition gift, size and confirm delivery options.

What to bring: All participants should bring a water bottle to reduce waste. Large water dispensers are available on site and at rest stops. All cyclists must wear a helmet when riding. Additional items we recommend include: medications or diabetes supplies, drivers license and medical insurance card, any food you must have or can have if you have a food allergy, extra tube for your bike (if riding).

Share a link to your page and say that the event is on and it's not too late to give. You can turn in any cash, checks or matching gift forms during the check-in/registration process.
