What is the Tour de Cure and why should I join?

+

The Tour de Cure is an annual fundraising event for the American Diabetes Association. Participants may walk, run, ride or virtually participate in the Tour de Cure event. This event raises money for research, advocacy, programs and education concerning diabetes. You can help make a difference in the lives of people living with diabetes.

Each year approximately 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes. Over 30 million Americans have diabetes and another 84 million Americans have prediabetes. Many people are unaware they have prediabetes and don’t realize their risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

For more information about the Tour de Cure visit the American Diabetes Association’s 2020 Tour de Cure Arizona website.
