In Colorado, 316,000 people have diabetes and 900,000 more have pre-diabetes. And I am one of them and so is my brother, Dave and sister, Mary, but they live in Minnesota. I don’t know how many people in Minnesota have diabetes, but I’m guessing it’s a fair amount.
For the past five years, I’ve ridden in the Tour de Cure, a fundraising bike ride for the American Diabetes Association. In 2011 and 2012, I was the chair of the Southern Colorado Tour de Cure and my team, the SnydeRemarks Ruff Riders, has been the top fundraising team in 2011, 12, and 13. In 2011, I was second on the individual fundraiser list and in 2012, I was the top individual fundraiser.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the cause.
I’m riding in my sixth Tour de Cure in September.
