Tour de Cure Contributions

| March 18, 2007 8:48 pm

Between Ann and I we now exceed $1,000 in donations sponsoring us for the Tour de Cure that we will ride in June. I understand now that Greg Lemond is going to ride the 60 mile course instead of the 100 mile one, so Ann will be riding with him. The team captain suggests that Ann just catch his wheel! Greg is a prior winner of the famous Tour de France.

We appreciate all those who have sponsored us.

Tour de Cure – June 9th

| March 4, 2007 9:24 pm

Both Ann and I recently signed up to ride in the Tour de Cure on June 9th, in Brigham City Utah. Franz will ride the 100 mile route and Ann is training to ride 60 miles. This event is used to help raise funds to develop a cure for diabetes. Each mile we ride, each dollar we raise will be used in the fight to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. This is personally important to us since our son Greg has Type 1 diabetes. We will be on the Gold’s Gym team and will have a special member joining our team this year, Greg Lemond, prior winner of the famous Tour de France.

No matter how small or large, your generous gift will help improve the lives of more than 20 million Americans who suffer from diabetes, in the hope that future generations can live in a world without this disease. Together, we can all make a difference!

If you would like to sponsor either Ann or I, we would greatly appreciate it. Together we hope to raise at least $750.
