My sister is riding in this National Juvenile Diabetes event.....AWESOME!!!!!
GO TEAM TALLY!!!!!
Tour De Cure
This is an email I received from her today, if anyone is looking for specifics!.....
OK - so I have heard back that some of you are interested in joining
me for the 'Tour De Cure' (www.tour.diabetes.org) - I have registered
for the New England Classic 150 and formed "Team Tally" so if you sign
up be sure to join my team. They will give you a fundraising page
where people can contribute online - makes it much easier. And we can
all ride together.. Please forward this to anyone else that you think
may be interested in joining our team....
We will be riding for my sweet adorable niece Tallia Emily who has
type 1 diabetes as well as any friends and family members that you
would like to add to the list.
The ride that I am doing is July 10-11 and 75 miles each day (total
150). It is a supported ride (includes support and gear
transportation, mechanical assistance, medical volunteers,police
escorts, directional signs, rest stops every 10-12 miles with food and
drink and lodging at UNH) and requires a $600 min fundraising amount.
If you register now its $50 - but goes up to $80.
The ride begins in Woburn MA Saturday morning and goes to UNH the
first day where we stay overnight. The second days ride begins in
Durham NH and goes to Biddeford Maine. The ride continues from here
for the 550 miler (5 days). The participants of the 2 day ride are
driven back to Woburn.
If you register for the Classic, you can ride other New England Tour
de Cure rides for training without raising additional funds. Contact
the ride office to register. Other ride dates are:
Gloucester, MA - May 22, 2010
Narragansett, RI - June 6, 2010
North Haven, CT - June 12, 2010
Kennebunk, ME - June 13, 2010
Tour de Cure is a series of fundraising cycling events held in 43
states nationwide to benefit the American Diabetes Association.
The Tour is a ride, not a race, with routes designed for everyone from
the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist. Whether participants
ride 10 miles or 100 miles*, they will travel a route supported from
start to finish with rest stops, food to fuel the journey and fans to
cheer them on!
Lynne will also be riding with the Tallygear Tummietote on.....
