Get Involved!

Get involved with the American Diabetes Association with some fun upcoming events! I would love to see you at 1, 2, or all! Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the events listed below. 

1. Twins vs KC Royals @ Target Field – Sunday, April 29th 1:10pm

Buy a ticket for $30. The seats are in the home plate view section. The proceeds from this will go directly to the American Diabetes Association. Join me for a fun day out at Target Field! Park your car at my house beforehand (for free!) and we can take the light rail downtown. I need to know if you’re in by Tuesday for this game. Once I get your check in the mail I will send out your tickets to you.

2. Twins vs Tigers @ Target Field – Sunday, May 27th at 1:10pm

If any of you participated in this game last year with me…all 100+ of us in our group had a BLAST! Don’t miss out. Tickets are limited and on a first come, first serve basis. Ever wanted to walk on Target Field as the Twins were warming up!?! This is your chance! Not only for $40 do you get the opportunity to do a pre-game parade on the field (only our group!), but before the game join me at my house for a BBQ lunch. FREE parking included…just leave your car at my house and we will take the light rail downtown. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity!!! Feel free to pass this info on to any friends, family, or co-workers. Hurry though…tickets are going fast!

Gameday Parking + Lunch + Pre-game Parade at Target Field + U.S. Bank Home Run Porch View Tickets + supporting the diabetes cause = priceless (or $40 however you look at it)

3. Tour de Cure – June 2nd

 http://main.diabetes.org/goto/tourdeq

Once again, Team “Tour de Q”, will participate in the American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure fundraising event on Saturday, June 2nd. We would love for you to join us for the cycling event through the Twin Cities or sponsor us for the ride. I will be opting for the 45-mile route while others prefer the 27-mile scenic option or the 8-mile river scenic ride. My personal goal this year is to raise $13,000 in honor of the 13 years that I have lived with diabetes. This money will go to help find a cure for this terrible disease and improve the lives of those affected.

One out of three babies born in America this year will develop diabetes in his or her lifetime. I know that the fight to find a cure is formidable. Some may think it’s impossible. However, curing diabetes is not only my platform, it is my life purpose. We need to have hope that a cure is possible, courage to continue to fight, and faith to know someday the battle against diabetes will be won. Together, I know a cure is within walking distance.
