Note: This page refers to the 2013 Tour De Cure, which I already completed. (in about 6hrs 45 minutes)
I am riding because the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure is
so much more than a cycling event to me. My mother had diabetes and was
taken away from us earlier than she should have been, as a result of
diabetes related health issues. I miss her very much and would love to
see a cure for diabetes happen soon so that other people and their
family and friends don't have to suffer from its effects. It is my
opportunity to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives
of those who are affected by diabetes.
I am committed to ride
in the 100 mile ride and raise money in this inspirational event not
only because 26 million people in the United States have diabetes, but
because I personally know some of them, and I want to do something about
it. Won’t you help me start a chain reaction?
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.
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
I truly appreciate your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
