Riding for a Cure

 

On May 18, 2014 the “Tour de Cure North Shore” will take place starting at the Topsfield Fairground in Topsfield, MA. This event is part of a series of charity bike rides run by the American Diabetes Association.  Last year these events raised $26 million which went towards scientific research as well as direct assistance and support for those suffering with diabetes.

Over 25 million Americans suffer from diabetes.  There are several types of diabetes which can affect people of all ages. It is a condition that requires constant monitoring and management as well as the support of countless healthcare providers, loved ones, and family members of those who suffer from this condition.  Undoubtedly, it has affected somebody in your life.

The Tour de Cure North Shore includes a 15, 31, 62, and 100 mile bike ride.  So far the event has over 700 registered riders and has raised over $135,000.  I’ve decided to register for the 62 mile ride.  That’s about 25 miles further than I’ve ever ridden before!  I’ve already met my minimum fundraising requirements.  I don’t need any more donations in order to participate in the ride, but please take a moment to visit their website.  Learn about this great organization and consider sponsoring me as a rider, making a general donation, or signing up and joining me for the ride!
