I have moved my fitness commitment to myself to the next level, society. I am registered to ride in the Tour de Cure to raise funds for the American Diabetes Association. I am a Red Rider, which means I have this disease. My father has this disease, all four of my grandparents have this disease.
I will ride in an effort to raise funds for diabetes awareness, education, and research to find a cure. I will ride to prove that I am able to commit to my fitness for myself and for others. I will ride because the more I exercise, the less medication I need to take for control of my disease. I will ride to help improve the future for the country, the state, the city I live in and for my children and future generations. By the year 2050, 1 in 3 are expected to have diabetes if the current trends continue. There are currently 26 million people who suffer from diabetes in this country as I type.
I will ride because I believe in myself and am committed to my health.
