You’re invited to participate in the March 6 Tour de Cure bicycle ride that starts at the UCF College of Medicine and will raise money to help find a cure for diabetes.

The Tour has five different routes – 10, 25, 54, 77 and 101 miles — that are designed for everyone from the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist. And whether you ride 10 miles or 100, you’ll enjoy a fun day on your bike for a great cause.

The 10-mile Family Fun ride travels from the college up and back on scenic Lake Nona Boulevard, while the 100 mile ride takes you into Seminole County. All the routes are supported from start to finish with rest stops, food and fans to cheer you on.

Last year, more than 50,000 cyclists participated in Tour events nationwide and raised nearly $17 million to help prevent and cure diabetes and improve the lives of all people affected by the disease. The Tour’s registration fee has been waived for all College of Medicine riders. A team captain should register and then invite team members to join the team online at . Please use VIP2011 as your promo code to waive the registration fee.

There is a $150 fundraising minimum for each team member OR the team needs to have a $150 team average. Money raised helps bring us one step closer to stopping a disease that affects 25.8 million Americans.

Interested in volunteering at the Tour de Cure? Please contact Amanda Gernazian at the American Diabetes Association: or (407) 660-1926 ext. 3020.
