Cyclists riding from California to Rhode Island to support the virtual American Diabetes Association
Rochester, New York — Two 70-years-old cyclists are making 3,500 miles tour in order to help raise awareness about diabetes.
Rich Kerbel and Thom Deller, are riding from California to Rhode Island to support the virtual American Diabetes Association “Tour de Cure.”
On Wednesday they made a stop in Rochester to meet with other cyclists.
“This is our virtual Tour de Cure I guess,” Dellar said. “Diabetes is an issue in my family. I have a sister with it, a niece with it. My uncle died because of it. So it’s important to get some research done, so when we made a decision to go with a charity, we decided that was the charity.”
The 30th Anniversary of the Upstate New York ADA’s Tour de Cure is scheduled for next Saturday, June 12.
