Tour de Cure- Last Call

Tour de Curetake the ride of your life

This Saturday and Sunday I will be riding 150 miles from Woburn, MA to Biddeford, ME.
Rain or shine! I want to thank all my knitting friends who helped me with fundraising.
All proceeds go directly to the American Diabetes
Association and my company is matching contributions for this event. Check Monday for
photos of the event.

If you would still like to donate, I have re-posted the information below. Any amount is greatly

I recently accepted the challenge of cycling in the American Diabetes Association's
Tour de Cure
fund-raising event. I am taking part in this event because I believe in
and support the Association's mission:

to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

My connection to diabetes is probably similar to many Americans. My maternal grandmother developed the disease in her fifties due to poor diet and exercise. Over the past 15 years I've watched my father take part in many clinical drug trials in an effort to manage his symptoms of the illness. Fortunately, public awareness is increasing and many are finding how to prevent Type II diabetes. I'm glad to help fund continuing research and get us closer to a cure for juvenile diabetes and other forms.

You can help by supporting my fund-raising efforts with a contribution in any amount.

Your tax-deductible gift will make a difference to more than 20 million Americans
who are affected by diabetes
and another 40 million who are at risk for developing diabetes.
It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause - you can make your donation online
by simply clicking the link at the bottom of this message.

More information on the American Diabetes Association, its programs, and diabetes in general
can be found at the Association's Web site, www.diabetes.org.
