We want to congratulate all the participants in this past Saturday’s (June 10, 2017) Tour de Cure for raising money for the American Diabetes Association. Our very own team consisted of over 15 members, who rode for over 460 miles on the sunny summer day. Riders had the option to complete either 20, 40, 60, or 100 miles for the event. Our team raised almost $8,000. Rochester Colonial was honored to have taken part in such a great cause!
The Tour de Cure is the largest cycling event for diabetes research in the United States. Approximately 50,000 people participate in these events each year in nearly 80 cities across the country. Participants raise $30 million dollars each year to support the mission. Rochester, NY was the 2nd largest Tour de Cure cycling event in the country in 2016, raising over $1 million dollars. Their goal for 2017 was to take the #1 spot away from the Napa Valley Tour de Cure. We were happy to help contribute in the success of this new found rivalry. #beatnapa
