Welcome! 0 DAYS TO GO!!
The American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure for Michigan has been restructured and re-named "STEP OUT--WALK to Stop Diabetes." This change was made to combine two separate ADA events, the "Step Out" and "Tour de Cure" into one big event the same day, August 29, 2021.
This year the ADA celebrates its 30th Anniversary fundraising event supporting advancements in diabetes research, providing education programming, and ensuring advocacy for over 34 million Americans living with diabetes.
With your generous support, this year, I raised $4,350 or 87% of my $5,000 goal for 2021, and I finished in 1st Place in Michigan. Last year, I raised $4,571 toward my $5,000 goal for the American Diabetes Association, which also put me in 1st Place for individual fundraisers Since 2011, I have raised $45,245 to support the fight against Diabetes, which more than quadruples my $10,000 lifetime Tour de Cure/ Step Out Hall of Fame status.
Your support is important to me not just personally as a Type I Insulin dependent diabetic for 58 years, but our efforts together will help set the pace in the fight against Diabetes. So, please support me again with a donation. It is easy to make a contribution on line, and you get an instant receipt for tax deduction purposes. It's much easier for me and for you to make your contribution on line, and I ask that you please do so.
To donate online by e-mail, go to the bottom of this e-mail after my name, "Murray," click where it says "Click here to visit my personal page." Then click "Donate to Me," and follow directions.
You can also donate by text using your smart phone. Just text "diabetes" to 71760; then enter the amount of your contribution; enter Detroit Michigan for the location of the event; enter Murray Gorchow as the participant; touch "Next" and complete the billing information. That's all there is to it.
For those who still prefer to donate by check, make your check payable to the “American Diabetes Association”. Put "Step Out/Tour --Gorchow" in the Memo on your check and mail it to me at Murray Gorchow, 5532 Abington Rd., West Bloomfield MI 48322. I will send you a receipt by return mail.
As an additional incentive to donate to the American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure, those of you living in the Detroit area who contribute $100 or more will receive a discount card for 4 free basic car washes. Last year 18 of you (including Me ;-) in the Detroit area qualified. My friend Ryan Gesund is the owner of "Super Car Washes" at 11 locations in the Detroit area, including Southfield, Royal Oak, Commerce Twp., Walled Lake, Eastpointe, Sterling Heights, Warren and Farmington Hills. Just search at www.supercarwash.net/locations/ for the location nearest to you. Check it out! This year 18 donors qualified.
No matter how small or large, your generous gift will help improve the lives of nearly 34 million Americans, a number that is, unfortunately, growing, who suffer from diabetes, in the hope that future generations can live in a world without this disease. Together, we can all make a difference!
Thank you for making a generous contribution right now to this cause that is so important to me. Remember that any amount helps.
