By Dustin Stark — Saturday, June 8th at the 11th annual Utah Tour de Cure presented by Larry H Miller Dealerships saw 105 teams and 1,302 cyclists. That’s 1,302 faces contorted into various expressions, some of pain, or fatigue, some glowing with happiness, even some streaming with tears of joy. These were the faces of determination. They were faces seeking to make a difference, all striving to say one thing. “No one is alone in the fight against Diabetes.” The message was made by 3 year old rider Anna Hansen, just as it was made by 81 year old cyclist Richard Bond. With such overwhelming community support including a hefty list of sponsors like Larry H Miller Dealerships, Questar, Pacific Steel, American Express, IM Flash Technologies, Nate Wade Subaru, Cycling Utah and Taylor Audio the 2013 Utah Tour de Cure raised nearly $400,000 for the American Diabetes Association. This year’s ride may be over, but the Tour de Cure doesn’t stop until it accomplishes what it’s name so implies, an end to our nation’s struggle with diabetes. Take the ride of your life and lend a hand or a pedal to the Tour de Cure next year and help Stop Diabetes! For more information, visit: main.diabetes.org/utahtourdecure.
