At the beginning of 2008, the Shomrei Torah Synagogue Men's Club established a recreational bicycle club for its members. We typically ride at least once per month, weather and calendar permitting. To encourage tzadeka and help raise health consciousness, some of us signed up for the "Tour de Cure". This is a nationwide program of the American Diabetes Association ("ADA"), whose goal is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
Our Tour de Cure team consisted of two of our most outSPOKEn riders. Together, they raised awareness for a good cause amongst our members, raised over $2,500 for the ADA, and rode over 100 combined miles. Here is the Tour de Cure web site: http://tour.diabetes.org/site/PageServer?pagename=TC_homepage
