2020 Tour de Cure: Twin Cities

June 6


Join the American Diabetes Association® at the 2020 Tour de Cure: Twin Cities® for a powerful and inspirational day that’s perfect for the whole family or a company looking to engage with their employees in a meaningful way.

The Tour de Cure is an opportunity to recognize our participants with diabetes and Champion fundraisers who are committed to ADA’s mission. Every mile covered and every dollar raised brings us that much closer to a cure.

We value everyone in our community that want to take part in the event, which is why we offer ride, run, and walk route options for people of all abilities. Tour de Cure features well-marked cycling and walk/run routes, with safety marshals, safety vehicles and fully stocked rest stops to fuel your journey! Registered participants will enjoy lunch, diabetes resources, family activities, music and so much more when you reach the end of your event route.

Tour de Cure is a fundraising event and we’ll help you by providing the tools you need to exceed your goals! Once you register, you will receive access to your own personal fundraising center with email templates, a mobile app, and your own fundraising page.
