I can't say if I've posted this in the right place, but I perused the other categories and nothing seemed spot-on, so let's just hope that I'm at least close to where I need to be…
I want to let everyone here at Diabetic Connect that I am riding in the Albuquerque, NM area Tour de Cure for 2013. The ride happens on June 1, 2013 and I'm signed up - as a Red Rider (a person with diabetes) - to ride the 100K (about 62 miles, for the metrically impaired, like myself). The funds I am raising go to the American Diabetes Association for research, education and advocacy.
I'm riding in support of my family, friends and of the 26 million Americans impacted by this disease. I've been training hard and am loving every minute of my time on my bike, getting stronger, controlling my blood glucose, and feeling healthier than I have since being diagnosed in 2009. I have a small, but generous group of folks in my life who've contributed to my fundraising efforts, but I know there are more folks here, people like you, who have been significantly impacted by this disease and would like to make a contribution to a cause that can make a difference in ALL of our lives. This is your chance!
I invite you all to go to my Tour de Cure page and make a contribution in support of my ride - anything at all would be wonderful - I have what I feel is a modest goal of $750 and am currently at 68% of that. I know with your help I can meet, and maybe exceed my goal. As a final inducement, should you make a donation and let me know who you are, I will proudly add your name to my jersey to show my appreciation for the support!
Thanks so much! http://main.diabetes.org/goto/omg
