The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is committed to innovation and breakthrough research that will improve the lives of all people living with diabetes. Through advocacy, we fight for the right to affordable medications and technology, the right to be treated fairly at work and school, the right to quality health care, and so much more. We promote quality education for people with diabetes and professionals who care for those living with diabetes. As Tour de Cure® participants, your fundraising is critically important in the fight against diabetes.   

Your Tour de Cure participant fundraising center has all the tools you need to reach your goal. 

Set your goal. The fundraising minimum for Tour de Cure is $250 ($50 for youth), but most participants raise more than that. Riders who raise $1,000+ are Champion fundraisers and receive Champion perks. 

Why do you ride? Tell your story on your personal page. You can create a custom URL that you can share. 

Share your story on social media. Your personal page link can be shared on all your social media channels. 

Donor prizes. You can set up giveaways for incentives to your donors. For example, you can give away a t-shirt or small item to any donor who gives $50 during a time frame.  Be creative with rewarding your donors!

Share videos. You can add a link to your streaming channels on YouTube or Twitch.
