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. Click here to learn more about the event, which begins in Calverton Executive Airpark, NY.
