Tour de Cure set for tomorrow at South Fork

American Diabetes Association will host the annual Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Tour de Cure tomorrow at South Fork Ranch in Parker. The ride, run and walk will raise funds for research, programs and education that will help treat and prevent diabetes, find possible cures and improve the lives of those living with and affected by diabetes.

The 2016 DFW Tour de Cure engaged more than 1,100 community participants to raise nearly $700,000 in support of the association’s mission, a press release stated.

 The event, which starts at 6 a.m. offers scenic, safe and well-marked routes for all ages and ability levels, including: a 5K walk/run and six cycling routes – three miles, 10 miles, 24 miles, 38 miles, 52 miles and 62 miles. Participants living with diabetes are encouraged to register as Red Riders and Red Striders to be celebrated the day of the event.

It also features activities and entertainment for individuals from all walks of life, including Flight Zone, a family activities area and a photo booth. After completion of the walk/run and rides the celebration will continue through 3 p.m. as a community festival featuring complimentary food and beverages for participants, live music, family-friendly activities and much more. Community members not participating in the walk/run or rides are welcome to join in the fun at the community festival.
