The Tour de Cure is more than a great day on a bike. How many opportunities do you get to change the future? If current trends continue, 1 in 3 children born in the year 2000 will develop diabetes in their lifetime. You can help change that trend by raising important funds for the American Diabetes Association. Donations raised will go towards educational outreach, advocacy efforts and critical research that will ultimately Stop Diabetes once and for all.
The Tour de Cure riders are responsible for collecting donations to meet the fundraising minimum in order to participate; it powers our services to the 25.8 million children and adults with diabetes until there is a cure. We're here to help you reach and exceed that minimum with easy-to-use tools and resources. When you register, a personal page is created for you that makes it easy to reach out to everyone in your email contact list in only a few minutes. Our local Tour de Cure coordinator and online support staff are available by phone, chat or email to help you get started and answer any questions you have. We've put the fun in FUNdraising for you!
Join the millions in the movement to Stop Diabetes®: make a donation today! Start with a contribution to your own account, then invite friends and family to do the same.
In thanks for your fundraising efforts, you will choose from a selection of great prizes including electronics, apparel, cycling accessories and much more.
At the Tour de Cure, we strive to provide our riders with a lot of personal attention to help them meet and exceed their fundraising goals. Throughout the course of the campaign we offer a lot of valuable tips and tricks to make fundraising as easy as possible. We do this through emails, phone calls, personal visits, and can even host internal kickoff events with teams at their own companies if requested.
We offer all of our registered riders a comprehensive fundraising guide which can be used as a reference throughout the year. Below are a few helpful fundraising tips as you get started on your fundraising:
These tips are just a few of the things we suggest to our riders but we're also here to provide you with a personalized experience so please reach out to your local Tour staff to talk about other ways in which you can fundraise successfully!
