Online Fundraiser to Benefit American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure
BicyclingHub.com knows its customers ride their bicycles for different reasons: fun, fitness, transportation, recreation, and/or restoration. And sometimes, they ride for a cause. Now they can shop for one, too: on Friday, December 10th, BicyclingHub.com is teaming up with the American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure and donating 10% of all sales to aid in the fight against diabetes.
The premise behind this unique holiday fundraiser is simple: the more items an individual purchases for loved ones (or themselves), the larger the donation to the Tour de Cure. By simply utilizing the unique link http://store.yahoo.com/cgi-bin/clink?bicyclinghub+MnZSbN+index.html+ to shop online, proceeds will be automatically directed to the American Diabetes Association.
"The Tour de Cure is a great fit for BicyclingHub.com's giving goals. Not only is the ride about raising money for the American Diabetes Association, it's also about a healthy lifestyle that includes the cycling," states Doug Duguay, President of BicyclingHub.com.
"BicyclingHub.com has raised over $5,000 for Tour de Cure in the past 2 years, we appreciate their continued support and hope everyone shops this Friday," enthuses Kris Bockmier, Associate Director, American Diabetes Association.In 2011, the Tour de Cure is celebrating 20 years and 83 cities riding strong nationwide. 10% of total proceeds from this special one-day online fundraiser will benefit the Portland Tour de Cure, scheduled for July 30, 2011. Starting from Hillsboro Stadium, the scenic ride offers cyclists of all abilities an opportunity to enjoy the rolling hills of the Willamette Valley. Tour de Cure is a series of fundraising cycling events held in 43 states nationwide to support the ADA's mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
