I want to Stop Diabetes so that endurance athletes with diabetes will have slightly shorter Race Plans for Race Day as they will no longer have to have detailed “diabetes strategies.”

And once we Stop Diabetes we won’t have a Tour de Cure with Red Riders, but we will still have a Tour de Cured because organized bike rides where we celebrate health, wellness and movement will still be lots of fun and really good for all of us. And even when we Stop Diabetes, we will all still eat at least 10 servings of fruits and veggies every day, but we’ll do it because we like veggies and fruit, not because we have diabetes.
