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.

Solution

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.

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.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
