On behalf of the ADA, the 2011 Houston Tour de Cure committee and myself, we would like to say thank you for all that you have done for the ADA and for those living with diabetes. Our rides last Saturday were awesome, and because of your support, we are expecting to exceed our fundraising goal by $20,000. This would not be possible without your continuous support and hard work. The funds raised through this event will help support local research, outreach programs and advocacy. You are truly making a difference in the fight against diabetes.
