On Saturday, October 14, the American Diabetes Association will host the annual DFW Tour de Cure at South Fork Ranch in Parker, TX. The ride, run and walk will raise funds to change the future of diabetes and help stop this devastating disease.
The DFW Tour de Cure, presented by Trinity Industries, is a one-of-a-kind activity-filled community festival, offering an inspirational daylong celebration that Tour participants have come to know and love. Tour de Cure offers beautiful routes for all ages and ability levels, including: a 5K Walk/Run presented by Hotels.com®, and six cycling routes – 3 miles, 10 miles, 24 miles, 38 miles, 52 miles and 62 miles. Participants living with diabetes are encouraged to register as Red Riders and Red Striders to be celebrated the day of the event. Registration is open at www.diabetes.org/dfwtourdecure.
All participants will enjoy safe and well-marked routes, superior SAG (support and gear) and medical support, all followed by a fun celebration back at the community festival featuring complimentary food and beverages, live music, family-friendly activities, and much more! Community members are also invited to join in the celebration and, for a small donation to the American Diabetes Association, can have access to the great entertainment and activities.
