I am supporting this event because the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure is so much more than a cycling event to me. It is my opportunity to do something about diabetes.
I am committed to this cause because 26 million people in the United States have diabetes and because my son has type 1 and my mother had type 2, and I want to do something about it. Will you help me raise money for this research?
Chances are, you also know someone who has been affected by diabetes and you already know how important it is to stop this disease. By making a donation on my behalf, 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.
I truly appreciate your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
