The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is gearing up for our Skylands Tour de Cure, a cycling event that not only encourages camaraderie and healthy living, but also raises funds for the ADA. Every mile spent cycling and every dollar that is raised will help prevent and cure the disease that affects over 26 million Americans. However, the event requires the support of volunteers in order to be a success! Please consider volunteering for this important cause. Volunteers are needed on June 6, 2015 to help set up for the event. Volunteers are also needed for the following on the event date, June 7, 2015:

Registration/Check-In Area - Welcomes the riders, helps check them in and gets them out on the route.

Food/Water Areas - Make sure riders are fueled properly with breakfast, lunch and lots of water!
