I am riding in the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure on June 11th because it is so much more than an event to me. It is my opportunity to help change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes.
I am committed to ride to raise money in this event not only because 26 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because I personally know some of them (including family members), and I want to do something about it.
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 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 apprecite your support. If you cannot donate at this time, please support me by wishing me well as I ride. Thank you!
