Summary

Tour de Cure is an annual cycling fundraiser of the American Diabetes Association. Donations directly support our mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. Locally in Oregon and SW Washington our Tour de Cure supports more than 345,000 in our communities who live with diabetes. In 2014 more than 940 registered riders participated of whom 14% are Red Riders (those with diabetes). We appreciate your generous support!

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There are 29.1 million Americans living with diabetes, another 79 million people with pre-diabetes. If trends do not change, 1 in 3 children born will have diabetes in their lifetime. Diabetes is the cause of 224,000 deaths each year and is the number one cause of blindness, kidney disease and amputaions not caused by trauma.

How will this project solve this problem?

Money raised at Tour de Cure will be used for diabetes research, advocacy and education. We encourage people to get active through supported Group Rides around the Portland Metro area leading up to their Tour de Cure ride.

Potential Long Term Impact

We will encourage exercise and people with pre-diabetes (79 million Americans) can prevent or delay diabetes with 5-10% weight loss (if overweight) and 30 minutes of exercise 5 days per week. Money raised funds research, advocacy and education.
