A message from David Guenther
I have again accepted the challenge of cycling in the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure fund-raising event.
I will be doing my bike ride on June 2, 2007 in Buffalo, NY.
I hope to be able to train for the 16 mile trek, this year. I was only able to do the 6 mile last year.
Once this would have been nothing for me, but now with my back and joint disabilities, not to mention my head trauma -- it will be good challenge for me
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 from a leisurely 10-mile course to a demanding 100-mile journey. I have joined 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 41 million people in the United States with pre-diabetes.
Now while I don't have full diabetes, I do have what is called borderline diabetes, which is VERY Common of children of diabetic parents. Diabetes run very heavy on both sides of my family.
In fact, in 1995 my Mother died from heart and Kidney Failure related to her long term diabetes.
It's fast and easy to support this great cause - you can make your donation online by selecting the "Click to Support Me" link below.
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.
