Tour de Cure

Lead. Inspire. Empower.

Why Form a Team?

It’s more fun to make a difference together! Gather your friends, family and co-workers and motivate each other to accomplish great things!  Serving as a Tour de Cure Team Captain can be so rewarding. By forming a team YOU can be a leader for a great cause.  All it takes is the willingness to reach out to others and a little extra time, and you’ll become one of the American Diabetes Association’s most important volunteers.

Teams come in all sizes and members can be of all different skill levels — it only takes two people to get started and five or more people to make a full team!

Team options include:

  • Company Teams
  • Friends & Family Teams
  • National Teams - Companies and organizations with teams that participate in multiple events across the country.

It starts right now with you.
