The Tour for A Cure Team have made the decision to support any riders that choose to start at the designated time of 8:00am. If it's raining and you wish to delay the start of your ride, the Tour for A Cure Team will still support any riders that start as late as 10:00am. The Germantown police will be available to escort any riders out of the parking lot starting at 8:00am. There will not be police escorts after that.
The Tour for A Cure Team will be at The Peddler beginning at 7:00am. The Tour for A Cure Team will have shirts for all riders who registered in time to get one. The Tour for A Cure Team will have snacks available and will have lunch food around noon. The Tour for A Cure Team would love to see you. If you signed up in time to get a shirt and can't pick it up tomorrow, please contact the Tour for A Cure Team and we will make arrangements to get it to you.
Thank you for your support!
The Tour for a Cure raises money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). JDRF’s research mission is to discover, develop and deliver advances that cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D). As the global leader in the fight against T1D, JDRF’s research programs are comprehensive — addressing the hopes and dreams of every person with T1D for the best quality of life and a cure for this disease.
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. It occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, called beta cells. Those living with T1D must constantly be vigilant in monitoring their food, stress, insulin, illness, physical activity and more just to keep their blood sugar in range. Even the most attentive person with T1D, is subject to horrific complications including heart disease, stroke, kidney malfunction, blindness and amputation.
