I am riding in the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure because diabetes has touched the lives of so many people close to me. I'm riding in memory of my Dad, and to support my mother-in-law, one uncle, and two aunts who are living with diabetes. It is my opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of all those who are affected by diabetes.
I am committed to ride and raise money in this inspirational event not because over 29 million people in the United States have diabetes but because I personally know some of them and I want to do something about it. Won't you help me start a chain reaction?
Chances are you also know someone who has been affected by diabetes and you already know how important it is to stop this disease. By making a donation on my behalf or by joining my team you will be helping the American Diabetes Association provide community-based education programs protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.
With your help we will fight for a future where a parent does not have to hear that their child has diabetes. A future where an adult does not have to face the uncertain times ahead after receiving a diabetes diagnosis. A future where you and I will know that we had a part in making this possible.
I truly appreciate your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
