Dan-Gulf team to participate in the 2012 Tour de Cure for Diabetes

Released: November 10, 2008

Tour de Cure

The Dan-Gulf Biking Team will join hundreds of other cyclists from around the region to
participate in Tour de Cure, 25, 50 and 100 miles cycle event to benefit the American Diabetes
Association. The ride will take place on April 21, 2012 from Mandeville, Louisiana. Our
reason however, is far more important than the personal challenge of completing this ride. As
participants in the ride we share the common goal of raising money to support the American
Diabetes Association in its mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all
those affected by diabetes.
 
MSWe again have the privilege of dedicating this ride to Elizabeth Netherland, our office
manager. Liz was diagnosed with diabetes 21 years ago and has endured a number of serious
complications including kidney failure requiring dialysis 3 times per week while waiting for a
double transplant (kidney and pancreas).
 
In spite of all these complications, Liz?ǨѢs attitude is positive and her outlook on life is bright.
We are grateful for the many research advances that have helped her and many others to live
productive lives. We now fully understand the powerful impact of contributions made by
companies, foundations, and individuals such as yourself.
 
We ask that you consider helping us raise the support needed for us to complete this ride.
More importantly, though, we ask you to consider Liz and the 23.5 million other people in this
country who suffer with this disease- including more than 57 million with pre diabetes.
Your financial support will ensure that the many programs, education, and research done by
the American Diabetes Association will continue.
 
We look forward to hopefully hearing from you or receiving your contribution in the mail
within the next week. Please make checks payable to The American Diabetes he Association
