For the seventh time, I am riding in the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure because it is so much more than a cycling event to me. It is my opportunity to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes.
WHY I DO THIS:
This is personal for me. Every year when I reach out to friends, colleagues and relatives to ask them to join my team or donate, they tell me about their loved ones that have diabetes. They tell me that they already know how important it is to stop this disease and thank me for working to make their lives better. 34,000,000 people in the United States have diabetes, and as we know, this group has been especially hard hit by the pandemic. The need has never been greater.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
By making a donation on my behalf or by joining my team, you will be helping the 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!
