The Tour de Cure is coming to Corpus Christi in 2013! “Join us as we welcome Tour de Cure to the Coastal Bend for the first time! Tour de Cure is more than just a cycling event. It’s a life-changing event. A day full of fun and excitement where riders of all levels join forces in the fight to Stop Diabetes® and raise critical funds for diabetes research, education and advocacy in support of the American Diabetes Association.”
On April 20th, 2013, the Tour de Cure will offer a variety of ride route lengths including 60 miles, 45 miles, 25 miles and 10 miles.
The fund raising goal of $100,000 will help to raise awareness and stop diabetes through the American Diabetes Association. The ride fee is $15 with a minimum funding donation of $100.
“The Tour de Cure is a series of fundraising cycling events held in 44 states nationwide to benefit the American Diabetes Association.
The Tour is a ride, not a race, with routes designed for everyone from the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist. Whether you ride 10 miles or 100 miles, you will travel a route supported from start to finish with rest stops, food to fuel the journey and fans to cheer you on!
Each Tour de Cure event has its own character and style—from unique starting points to gorgeous scenery and more! Choose your state and read more about your local Tour. No matter where you ride you’ll enjoy a fun day on your bike for a great cause.
In 2011, more than 55,000 cyclists in 80 events raised more than $18 million to support the mission of the American Diabetes Association: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.”
