To the Editor:
As I prepare for my third Tour de Cure for Diabetes Bicycle Ride, I am reaching out to the surrounding communities for support in achieving my goal for this year of $1,500. I will be riding in the Rochester Tour de Cure on Saturday, May 19, as a Red Rider (someone who rides with diabetes). Please consider making a donation to the American Diabetes Association by supporting me in this ride. All donations are 100 percent tax-deductible and all donations go directly to research.
To learn more about the Tour de Cure, you can go online at americandiabetesassociation.com and click on Tour de Cure. You can also donate in my name online at the Tour de Cure site for the Rochester ride.
Donations also can be mailed to me at Kristy Kittleson, 1169 85th St., Welcome, MN 56181. Please make checks payable to the American Diabetes Association. Thank you very much for your consideration in supporting this very worthwhile cause.
