Hello! I did the Tour de Cure Orlando in February with my coworkers (im a type1) and we had close to $300,000 dollars raised! Kudos on 60 miles!

Where are you riding at? My husband and I were involved with the Tour De Cure for about 5 years when we lived near Detroit, MI! Great event! Good for you!

Thank you ! I really hope all the money earned from the Tour De Cure goes toward finding a cure.

If you are interested - or if you know anyone else that would be interested in running in the Chicago Marathon, have them check out the Cellmates Team. All proceeds of the run will go toward the Chicago Diabetes Project - they are pushing for a cure. The link is:

That is incredible and we thank you so much for your efforts and support. Would you post the link to the ride so that other people can join you next year. So many here want to DO something, this is a great way to help and also help ourselves. Thank you again for your efforts, they will be richly rewarded.
