On June 18, 2016, Roux’s T1 Team took part in a beautiful day of cycling on Long Island to support the American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure. Our team was the number one fundraiser this year, raising over $26,000! All proceeds help advance the ADA’s mission to stop diabetes through research, education, and advocacy. Thank you to our riders and everyone who supported this event!
Saturday, June 18 The 25th Anniversary of the American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure is this year—join the Roux team, form your own team, or ride alone to pedal toward a cure for diabetes. Though the cause of diabetes is unknown, Type 2 diabetes appears to be related to genetics, along with environmental factors like obesity and lack of exercise. Type 2 diabetes accounts for about 90-95% of all diagnosed cases.
Long Island’s Tour De Cure offers a number of options. Whether you’re looking for a friendly bike ride or a competitive long-distance race, you’ll help to raise funds, raise awareness, and raise your own heart rate.
