This is the third year that I will participate in Tour de Cure, one of the main fundraisers for the American Diabetes Association.  I have chaired the Alabama committee this year, though I have fantastic committee members who have really done most of the hard work in Birmingham.

Tour de Cure Alabama kicks off at 6:30 am Saturday morning.  There is still time to come out and ride with us.  There are several routes ranging from 20 miles to 105 miles.  The ride is well supported with great SAG and ham operators.

Why do I ride in Tour?  Because of all my family members who are diabetic.   Because I want to see funds raised for research to find a cure and to provide education and support for those living with diabetes. I have seen first hand what this disease does to a person’s life and it is not pleasant.  Let’s help find a cure together.  Come out and ride with us Saturday if you live in Alabama or find your local Tour de Cure and participate in it.  You can also donate to an individual or a team through the link above.
