Tour de Cure for Diabetes: Physician and nurse volunteers needed

The Tour de Cure needs physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants to volunteer during the race to make sure the participants stay healthy and safe.

On June 4-5th, 2011, the American Diabetes Association will hold the 20th annual cycling event in Eastern North Carolina in honor of diabetes research.

The Tour de Cure is a signature 2 day fundraising event providing money to fulfill the mission of the ADA – to Stop Diabetes®. The Tour de Cure is the biggest cycling event for diabetes in the country! The Tour is held in 80-cities nationwide and the Triangle and Sandhill area Tour is the only one currently in North Carolina.

Special to the NC Tour is a chance to ride 2 to 200 miles. The Tour De Cure is a challenging cycling event that lets both the avid and recreational cyclist raise money for diabetes research and educational programs while having a great time!

As the Tour celebrates 20 years of fighting diabetes while creating awareness and encouraging health and activity in our Triangle community, we want to invite you to join us as a volunteer at the Tour de Cure.

The goal of the 2011 Tour de Cure is to raise $250,000 and host more than 500 local riders! The funds raised will go to help in the fight against diabetes both locally and nationally.

In North Carolina alone, the ADA provides $2.3 million research dollars to the Triangle and serves more than 80,000 people through health fairs, Family Link, Safe at Schools, camp and other community programs.
