2022 Tour de Cure: New England

Team Moore

Our team is making a difference. You can too!  

Dear friends,

Team Moore rides again! After a two-year hiatus, the Tour de Cure is returning to in-person status, and the event is to be held in Lexington, Masschusetts, on August 21st.

Team Moore, however, has already logged our miles on June 17th, on the Nashua River Rail Trail. Our decision to do so was dictated by our belief that road riding is hazardous to life and limb. The parents of the youngest member (aged 12) and the Team captain (the senior member) share a commitment not only to the mission of the American Diabetes Association, but also to personal safety. 

Please note the unusually broad age-range of Team Moore (more than 70 years), as well as the longevity of your generous support, which in many cases dates back to 2005, the first year I participated in the Tour de Cure. Many more of you have contributed liberally to the Team since its formation in 2016.

The Tour de Cure is the principal fund-raiser of the American Diabetes Association, in support of its mission to care for the 34 million Americans affected by the disease, and to find new therapies and, eventually, a cure. 

Diabetes is a chronic disease, and (so far) an incurable one. But it is more than that. It is a disability, expensive in more ways than one. At the individual level, the person with diabetes has more than 2.5 times the medical expenses as a person without, for insulin, pills, tools to monitor blood sugar, and frequent medical appointments, which can become even more burdensome when the illness starts to affect other organs (typically eyes and kidneys).

At the national level, direct medical costs of diabetes amount to $237 billion annually, with an additional cost of $90 billion in lost productivity.

Diabetes is also a killer. For the past two years, the number of deaths from diabetes has exceeded 100,000, a sharp uptick from the 2019 (pre-pandemic) death toll of 87,000. 

Beyond these hard numerical facts lies an unquantifiable amount of human suffering caused by an insidious illness that attacks 1.4 million Americans each year.  

Please join us in the quest to prevent and cure diabetes, either by donating online, or by writing a check to the American Diabetes Association and mailing it to Team Moore at 18 Sterling Road, Princeton MA 01541. All contributions are tax-deductible, and some employers will double your gift through a matching gift program.

With thanks for your past support, and for considering a contribution to this year's campaign.

Team Moore (Anne, Thomas, Jamie, and Sarah)
