A seven-person team from Centric Chicago rocked it at the Tour de Cure cycling event on Sunday, June 11, which benefits the local chapter of the American Diabetes Association (ADA).
The team cycled a combined 442 miles – and raised $3,175. The money raised by the Tour de Cure helps send children to diabetes summer camp, fund researchers on a mission to cure diabetes, provide legal assistance for people with diabetes who experience discrimination, and more.
Participants included: Colleen Campbell, Mike Card, Eddie Francl, Kathy Gentile, Richard Gordan (team captain), Colleen McFarland, and Ted Perez.
