Welcome to Pat Gelsinger's Tour de Cure page!
Finding a cure for diabetes is urgent and of tremendous personal importance to me. In the U.S., someone is diagnosed with this disease every 21 seconds. I've been chairing the ride for a number of years given my strong support for the mission of TdC and ADA. I'm appreciative that my co-chair last year Charles Meyer, the CEO of Equinix has taken up the leadership role. I ask you to join us in supporting the fight for all those affected.
Diabetes impacts the health and lives of our families, friends, teams, and communities. During a time where the world is navigating the uncertainties of a global pandemic, people with diabetes must also face the reality that they are at higher risk for serious complications from COVID-19.
This year Tour de Cure celebrates 30 years of making an impact in communities nationwide and I’m riding to champion the over 34 million Americans living with this terrible disease because they need our support. Participating in Tour de Cure offers a unique opportunity to improve one’s own health, while contributing to the research and work the American Diabetes Association is driving to address health disparities in the U.S.
