In Western PA, approximately 400,000 people have diabetes. Of these, an estimated 23.8% have diabetes but don’t know it, greatly increasing their health risk. In addition, 37.5% of the adult population, have prediabetes with blood glucose levels higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. From an economic standpoint, diabetes costs an estimated $10.8 billion in Pennsylvania each year.
Tour de Cure: Ride.Run.Walk. is the premier fundraising campaign that fuels every aspect of the American Diabetes Association’s crucial work. But it’s so much more than just a fundraiser. Tour de Cure is equal parts inspiration, determination, community, and FUN.
At the Pittsburgh Tour de Cure, participants choose their move – walking, running or riding to celebrate and support the millions of Americans living with diabetes and to change the future of this devastating disease.
