Postponed due to poor air quality

The American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure: Finger Lakes Region is being rescheduled for Saturday, July 22, at Xerox Campus in Webster.

Organizers said, “After consulting with forecasters last week, the annual event was postponed in an abundance of caution due to poor air quality from the Canadian wildfires and to allow enough time for people to change their plans.”

Historically one of the top tours for fundraising in the nation, the Rochester (Finger Lakes) event draws participation across upstate New York, including the Buffalo and Syracuse regions, with cyclists united in raising much-needed funds for diabetes research, education and advocacy.

“A big thank you to everyone for their flexibility in rearranging plans while ADA contended with this challenging situation,” said Jeff Collins, executive director. “We are excited to welcome all of our participants, volunteers, sponsors, staff, vendors and friends to this year’s Tour de Cure: Finger Lakes region at Xerox Campus in Webster next month.”

The 2023 Tour de Cure encourages participants to focus on the three main components, including:

√ Committing to participate in person on event day at the event.

√ Continuing to fundraise, because the 37 million Americans with diabetes are counting on the support of the ADA’s mission.

√ Celebrating the journey by posting, sharing and showcasing efforts on social media using the hashtag #WeRideTogether, #RideWithMeIn2023, #FLXRegionTour, and tagging @AmDiabetesAssn to get featured. Riders can join the conversation on the community Facebook group to stay connected.
