Diabetes affects 23.6 million Americans, 425,000 in Wisconsin alone. Funds raised by the American Diabetes Association come back to Wisconsin in the form of research grants and help fund a number of education and outreach programs throughout the state, including summer camp. Your time invested in this event will help fund important studies to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. Please let me know if you are interested in volunteering in this year's Tour de Cure. It's a really fun event and the time spent volunteering is extremely rewarding.
