Ride to Cure

The Ride to Cure Diabetes is a unique and exciting way to fight diabetes. Participants choose from one of four Ride locations and bike for their choice of distance (usually between 30 and 100 miles) to raise money for JDRF. Since 2001, Iowans have been participating in this awesome event.Congratulations to the 2011 team for raising over $269,000 for research!We’d like to extend a very special Thank You toHy-Vee for their tremendous support of the Ride to Cure Diabetes.
