A Virtual Tour de Cure

We had a wonderful time celebrating those living with diabetes on July 25th at the virtual Tour de Cure 2020! Our dedicated riders, walkers, and volunteers made the day a great success. In Oregon, an estimated 399,000 have diabetes. 1,097,000 (33.5% of the adult population) have prediabetes. The funds raised at Tour de Cure support diabetes research, prevention initiatives, and programs to help people living with the disease. One of our programs that is supported by the funds raised at Tour is Living With Type 2, which enrolls participants in a yearlong program that provides helpful resources on diabetes such as nutrition, monthly tips, peer support, and information on community events. Our Type 2 Risk Test can alert someone that they might be at risk of developing type 2 diabetes and get them the healthcare they need before it is too late. 

 

We've released a new virtual Imagine Project Power which is typically offered as an in-person after-school program in select areas across the country. Due to COVID-19, we have adapted this program to be a nationwide two and a half week online/virtual program called Imagine Project Power, offered in two sessions in 2020 with a two-session second phase in 2021. Participants  received activity boxes at no cost directly to their doorsteps and participated in online programming/group meetings via Zoom. 

 

Our Safe at School program has personally touched many of our Tour de Cure participants. With the help of local nurses and diabetes educators, Safe at School trains school personnel to understand the various aspects of diabetes management in a school setting, so that children living with diabetes can have the same experiences as their classmates. One of our 30 champion fundraisers, Paige, is a young adult living with type 1 diabetes. When she was first diagnosed at seven years old, her life was flipped upside down. Her family called the American Diabetes Association to set up a Safe at School training. This training gave Paige and her family the security they needed to know that Paige’s school was a safe place for her.

 

Tour de Cure brings together those impacted by diabetes to raise money and awareness for this life-altering disease. We have come a long way in the 9 years since Paige’s diagnosis, but we still have a lot of work to do to make sure everyone affected by this disease has access to the medicine and technology needed while we work to ultimately find a cure! Consider joining us to help us move closer to a world free of diabetes and its burdens.
