With over 29 million people in the U.S. affected by the disease, it touches a lot of people and their families as they manage their care each day. This year's Saratoga Tour De Cure was held on June 5th and together with your purchases and generous individual & business donations, I was personally able to raise $2100 (wow!) for the American Diabetes Association - THANK YOU!!!
I had the opportunity to share my story about living with diabetes on a local news station in Saratoga Springs, NY - LookTV - for the Saratoga Tour De Cure. I was joined by my Davidson Brothers Drafters Team Captain, Todd Eicher (I AM SO PROUD OF OUR TEAM: we are the highest fundraising team in the 2nd largest TDC in the nation - WOOHOOOO!!!!). This year, Razimus Jewelry committed to donating 10% percent of all profits from sales through June 5th to the American Diabetes Association. With your buying power, you helped to support an organization that is devoted to funding research, outreach and advocacy for families like mine that live with diabetes.
