Are You Ready for Tour?
Thank you so much for your tremendous support of the Kennebunks Tour de Cure! Your passion, commitment and energy made this year's event a huge success. We couldn't have done it without you!
More than a 600 participants, plus volunteers, sponsors and spectators came together to raise more than $325,000 (and counting!) to fund critical research, advocacy efforts, programs and education to support all children and adults living with diabetes.
The event may be over, but we are still charging forward. Here are some important updates and reminders:
Post-Event Fundraising: Your Participant Center will remain open for online fundraising, and cash/check donations can be sent to our local office at the address below. Please include a note with your name so we can credit the gift to you.

Recognition Gift Deadline: You have through Saturday, June 30 to continue fundraising for a Tour jersey, wind vest, hoodie or other Recognition Gift. Some post-event Champion benefits are still available to participants who raise $1,000 or more.
Matching Gifts: Take a minute to check our matching gift search and see if you or any of your donors work for a company that matches gifts. Some will even match what you collect as a participant. No results? Check with the HR or Benefits department to see if there's a matching program.
