Get Your Bike Wheels Ready!
This Saturday, we’re expecting more than 400 cyclists to descend upon our four-star resort as part of Tour de Cure, a series of fundraising cycling events held in 44 states nationwide to benefit the American Diabetes Association.
This is the first year that we’re hosting this cycling event and we couldn’t be more excited to lend our support to stop diabetes. Beyond being the host site for the ride, our team members have gotten involved by creating our own M Team. We’re even raffling a brand new bike to one of our team members!
At this year’s Tour de Cure there will be a total of 65 teams! Riders have the choice to go on an 8-mile, 30-mile, 65-mile or 100-mile route. It may sound daunting, but when we spoke to Tracie Patten, ADA Market Manager – Nevada, she assured us that if we could do 30 minutes of cardio then we could do the 8-mile ride!
If you’re active, even the least bit, and own a bike, we encourage you to register yourself or to join a team. The American Diabetes Association has added a number of new elements to this year’s ride including a new VIP zone and a Champions Dinner for riders who raise more than $1,000.
It’s not too late to register! Just visit www.diabetes.org/tourvegas for more details. We hope to see you!
