Fundraising Events


Our signature fundraising events — Tour de Cure, Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes — give you the opportunity to not only raise money for the Association and its important work but to also participate in a fun activity. 

We have other fundraising events you can participate in as well, such as Father of the Year, School Walk for Diabetes, and Rip's B.A.D. Ride.
