Please Help Prevent and Cure Diabetes
I recently accepted the challenge of cycling in the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure fund-raising event. The Tour de Cure is a series of cycling events held in over 80 cities nationwide. The Tour is a ride, not a race; it features different route lengths and I am doing the 100 km / 62 mile ride in Tyrone, Georgia on May 18. My wife Marne and I will join thousands of others to pedal in support of the Association's mission: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
I am asking you to help by supporting my fund-raising efforts with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift will make a difference in the lives of more than 20 million Americans who suffer from diabetes and another 54 million people in the United States with pre-diabetes.
It's fast and easy to support this great cause - you can make your donation online by going to:
On that page you will find a button that says, “Click Here To Sponsor Me” If you prefer to use a check, you can mail one to The Lighthouse or drop one off the next time you stop by. Make the check payable to the American Diabetes Association. For donations over $250, ADA will send you a receipt. For those under $250, your cancelled check is your receipt. If you aren’t scheduled to come in until after 5/18 simply let us know how much you would like to contribute and we will collect it on your next visit.
Any amount, great or small, helps in the fight against this deadly disease. I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress. If you want to do even more to help, please consider joining me in this great event. Our efforts will help set the pace in the fight against diabetes.
More information on the American Diabetes Association, its programs and diabetes in general can be found at the Association's Web site: www.diabetes.org. For more information on Tour de Cure, please visit www.diabetes.org/tour.
Thanks for helping fight diabetes!
