Here I go AGAIN!
For the past TEN YEARS I've ridden in support of the American Diabetes Association's work to combat Diabetes. This year, I'm taking it up a notch by Captaining the Southwest Washington Central Labor Council's Tour de Cure Oregon /SW Washington Team!
I am asking you to support me and my team in the Tour de Cure® because finding a cure for diabetes is urgent and means so much to me!
Chances are, you also know someone who has been affected by diabetes, so you already know how important it is to stop this disease. I could use your help— by making a donation on my behalf you'll be helping the Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.
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.
Help Me Reach My Goal! When you donate you make an immediate impact:
- You spread awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes.
- You advocate for a child with diabetes to have the same learning opportunities at school.
- You fund life-saving research that will bring us closer to a cure.
- You provide access to community programs and free resources that help those living with diabetes.
Performers like me often try to make a difference through our work. We can help to educate people about issues facing society, and influence the conversation about those issues - but how often does the every-day working performer have an opportunity to make a direct impact on a disease that affects millions of people nation-wide? Now, I know money is tight this year (especially in light of the pandemic) but anything - even $5.00 and $10.00 donations - can make a difference!
Thank you for your generous donation!
