They rally friends, family and co-workers to fundraise and reach team goals. They recruit riders and fundraisers to their team throughout the year and always have a great time on ride day.
Red Riders- Our Red Riders are participants living with diabetes. They are why we ride! Red Riders receive special promotions throughout the year and perks on ride day. At registration, if you are living with diabetes, make sure you select that you are a Red Rider to be part of this special group of riders! Tour de cure recognizes Red Riders as the heros on the day of the event.
Champions to Stop Diabetes- Our Champions are riders who raise $1,000 or more to Stop Diabetes. Champions receive special perks on ride day as well as party to celebrate the great fundraising efforts, including a chance to win a prize valued at $2,000+. Anyone can be a Champion to Stop Diabetes!
Team Red- Team Red welcomes everyone and anyone that wants to find a cure for diabetes.

Step Out Moves to the Oregon Convention Center, Expo
That's right! Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes is moving to the Oregon Convention Center the morning of our annual Diabetes Expo, Saturday, November 22. The goal of Step Out is the same: to raise awareness and funds for the mission of the American Diabetes Association while moving your feet and doing your body good. The venue and route is a little bit different, however we promise a great time and are providing you with exclusive access to the Expo floor before the doors open to the public. Think of this as 2 in 1. Two great events in one venue on one day!
Here's how it works. Register as a team or individual, and then recruit friends, family and co-workers to register, raise money and walk with you to Stop Diabetes. Our new course will be an indoor track located in Exhibit Hall C at the Oregon Convention Center; the same place we hold Expo. Instead of a 1 or 3 mile course, you’ll walk laps on our “Expo Track” through the Expo exhibits. Walk as many laps as you can in one hour beginning at 9:00 am. Though the weather in November may be cold and wet, our “Expo Track” will be warm and fun with music provided by 105.1The Buzz. The “Expo Track” will include interactive stations, prizes and "celebrity walkers." Each person raising at least $25 will receive a FREE pedometer that allows you to track how far you walk.
Walk for yourself or a loved one. People who walk with diabetes are our Red Striders and are the reason we walk. If you are a Red Strider you will receive special recognition at the event. Be sure to indicate you are a Red Strider when you register.
After you walk, join us for the annual American Diabetes Association Expo, presented by The Harold Schnitzer Diabetes Health Center at OHSU, and learn the latest on diabetes care, management and prevention for yourself or someone you love. The Expo is free and open 10am - 4pm. For more information on Expo and the many workshops and activities planned visit www.diabetes.org/oregonexpo. If you plan to stay for Expo, please pre-register at the provide website.
We are excited to have you join us for Step Out and Expo. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
