HEADLINE: U.S. diabetes deaths top 100,000 for second straight year. - Reuters Jan 31, 2022
Headlines like this are just a part of why I am joining the Tour de Cure for my 4th year.
There, however, a MUCH bigger reason I participate.
Me, myself, and I! I live with and fight against diabetes every day. My choices and actions have moved me from Diabetic, to pre-Diabetic, to non-Diabetic, and now back to pre-Diabetic.
Since I was diagnosed with Diabetes in March of 2019, I have committed to ride the Tour de Cure every year! Most of the time, I've got my diabetes under control with diet and excercise. And last year, I had everything dialed in to the point that I was considered Diabetes free. However, fall and the holidays this year have been tough time for me to maintain my fitness/eating routines. That is why the Tour de Cure is such an essential part of my health. Signing up helps me stay motivated! And your support through this page is helping me keep my eyes on the prize.
I am asking you to support me in the Tour de Cure(R) because finding a cure for family and friends that can't control their Diabetes through diet & excercise means so much to me.
Please Help Me Reach My Goal!
When you donate:
* You spread awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes.
* You advocate for a child discriminated against in school because of diabetes.
* You fund life-saving research.
* You provide access to community programs and free resources that help those living with diabetes
By participating in the Tour de Cure, I hope to inspire others to join me and raise money.
Thank you for making a generous donation to this cause that is so important to me.
