Diabetes sucks and, according to the American Diabetes Association, 25.8 million children and adults in the United States—8.3% of the population—have it. Each year the ADA hosts the Tour de Cure, a series of fundraising cycling events held in 44 states nationwide. So, in the wake of our semi-fame from the Washingtonian mention, I’m going to use our newly increased readership as an opportunity to flack for a colleague that’s riding for a good cause.
The National Capital Tour de Cure will be held on June 2, 2013 with the starting location at Reston Town Center. The distance ranges from 14 to 108 miles. It’s a ride, not a race, so whether you’re an occasional rider or the next Lance Armstrong (minus the doping thing, of course), there’s something for everyone.
