We would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who rode and/or raised money for this year’s American Diabetes Association (ADA) Nashville Tour de Cure and Team Vanderbilt. We had an extremely successful ride on Saturday, June 11, putting us over 200 riders for both of our rides. So far in this year’s ADA Tour de Cure we have raised over $107,000 for diabetes research with much of that money staying in Nashville to fund research, including at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
About Team Vanderbilt
Once again, Team Vanderbilt was the largest fund raising team in this year’s Nashville area ADA Tour de Cure, raising a little over $28,500, just short of our $30,000 goal.
It's is not too late to turn money in or give donations that will aid us in reaching the $30,000 mark.
