Mark Your Calendars: Tampa’s Tour de Cure 2009

Dawn Keglor, associate manager for the American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure, wrote to tell us about the date and time for the Tampa Bay area’s Tour event:

Our Tour de Cure event is coming up on March 1, 2009…it is an incredible ride! It takes place in Venice, FL…not too far from Tampa Bay. It is a lively ride with 4 different
routes: 15, 35, 60, and 100 miles of beautiful scenic views. We have entertainment, great food, prizes, and thank you gifts. It truly is a great biking experience!

Diabetes is on the rise, not only with our adults, but it is now affecting children in great measures. Statistically, every 21 seconds someone in America is diagnosed with Diabetes. We need the help of
cyclists in the Tampa Bay area and beyond to assist us in our fight against this disease.


Even more information is available at the signup page for this event:

Mark your calendars — these events are a blast and proceeds go to a very worthy cause.
