Ride to Cure Diabetes spins through Saratoga Springs
SARATOGA SPRINGS (WRGB) - The Ride to Cure Diabetes will be in Saratoga Springs September 13-16.
It's one of the nation's top type 1 diabetes (T1D) cycling fundraisers. It's one of six Ride to Cure Diabetes events held nationwide.
The event will bring together hundreds of cyclists representing 80 JDRF chapters from around the nation and Canada. They'll fundraise for JDRF, the global leader in T1D research. JDRF Ride events have raised more than $47 million for research.
"Last year's Spa City ride was a huge success," JDRF Development Director Denise Nicastro said. "Participants raised $2.7 million, which made our event the nation's top revenue-generating ride of the year! It also pumped more than $500,000 into Saratoga's economy, which earned an award from the Saratoga Convention & Tourism Bureau."
