After taking a year off I have decided to accepted the challenge of cycling in the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure fund-raising event again. The Tour is a ride, not a race. I have joined thousands of others to pedal in support of the Association's mission: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
This will be the 7th Tour De Cure that I will be participating in. I will be doing the 50 K (about 30 miles) ride on June 12th. I am asking you to help by supporting my fund-raising efforts with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift will make a difference in the lives of more than 20 million Americans who suffer from diabetes and another 41 million people in the United States with pre-diabetes.
It's fast and easy to support this great cause - you can make your donation online by selecting the "Click to Support Me" on the web page.
Any amount, great or small, helps in the fight against this deadly disease. I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress. If you want to do even more to help, please consider joining me in this great event. Our efforts will help set the pace in the fight against diabetes.
