The ADA along with Novo, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas attended the FC Dallas game this past Friday, to educate soccer fans about the risk of diabetes. The ADA along with its partners handed out educational information, give-aways and prizes. Though thunderstorms delayed the game, patrons enjoyed the exercise and free spins to win prizes.
Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes 2014 received two Retention Acquisition and Management awards from the ADA’s national headquarters earlier this week. “The RAM awards recognizes excellence in our signature events and those who have outperformed the nation to demonstrate what can be achieved through strategic planning, hard work, and a tenacious approach to executing from start to finish.”
Congratulations to Mike, Kevin and Rhonda on a tremendous event in 2014!

Tour de Cure, ADA’s cycling fundraiser, boasted 1300 riders despite rain the previous day, which flooded some of the longer routes. Tour de Cure was held Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway. Committee members say the rain and flood waters didn’t slow the event’s goal. Participants raised over $630,000 by Saturday, well on their way to reach the goal of $700,000.
“It was a great event,” said Jim Cadorette, the Tour de Cure chair. “We want to thank all our sponsors and participants for coming out and riding.”
