Well, I’ve achieved my goal for the 2013 Tour de Cure!
Last year I raised $3500 for diabetes research & education … this year I initially set my goal a little higher than that … $4000. I quickly found out I have a group of very generous and supportive friends, family, & co-workers. My goal was (rather quickly) raised to $5000.
Last Thursday, I achieved that goal.
Am I going to stop trying to raise money? Of course not. More is always better.
Being involved in the Tour de Cure is a wonderful outlet for me … it’s a very worthwhile cause, gets me on my bike on a regular basis, and has introduced me to a lot of really great people.
I’m also enjoying getting Team RED transformed into something a little more cohesive. While we haven’t been able to get as many training rides organized (mainly due to weather), I’m pleased with what we’ve done so far. I’m hoping to keep Team RED organized as a group through the year so we can continue pulling together as a real team next year.
