Toll Brothers, Parker Adventist team rides to help cure diabetes

Posted

A team of 28 riders, walkers and runners from the Toll Brothers homebuilding company and Parker Adventist Hospital raised more than $3,700 in cash and $9,000 in donated EMT services for the American Diabetes Association during the recent Tour de Cure Colorado.

The event attracted more than 110 teams and nearly 1,300 riders who solicited donations before the event, raising more than $800,000 for diabetes awareness.

“Coloradans are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as more than 400,000 suffer from the disease, and an additional 1.3 million more have prediabetes,” Mark Bailey, Toll Brothers Colorado division president, said in a news release. “The donations to our team will help the American Diabetes Association provide community-based education programs and fund critical research for a cure.”

Tour de Cure Colorado is an event to raise money for education, programs, research and advocacy and to recognize, highlight and empower those living every day with diabetes while raising awareness surrounding the disease.

Tour de Cure Colorado is not a race, but has routes designed for everyone: walkers, runners, occasional riders, families and experienced cyclists. For more information, visit www.diabetes.org/in-my-community/local-offices/denver-colorado/.
