What affects ~1/10 Americans?

Extrapolate that number and approximately 1 in 10 Space Dragons may eventually be affected by Diabetes. Marina was worried about you guys and wanted to help. Because she's so worried about us and her grandson, Andrew, she would like our help in raising money towards a cure. The Tour de Cure is a series of fund-raising cycling events held in 40 states nationwide to benefit the American Diabetes Association.

Here is a letter from the Ship to Shore Event Coordinator to Marina:

Dear Marina,
Yesterday we issued a challenge to raise $10,000 and get our total to $200,000 by the end of today. Well we are almost there. So remind your friends to make good on their promises by visiting and making a donation in your name.
Now here is a bigger, bolder challenge. If everyone raises $150 over the course of this Memorial Weekend, we will raise a lot more than $10,000... We will raise $100,000.

Now that's a great way to honor Memorial Weekend. Whether you are at a family gathering or hanging out with friends, talk about your plan to ride across The Vincent Thomas Bridge or cycle in our Family Ride on May 31st.
Tell everyone you are part of the first bike ride in 23 years to cross these port bridges and tell them you are raising funds to fight diabetes. Ask them to sponsor you this Memorial Weekend by visiting

Also, for every purchase you make at JAX Bicycles between now and the end of June, Jax Bicycles will donate 10% to Tour de Cure. So visit, find a store near you and tell them you are a Tour de Cure rider.


If you guys want, they are still registering riders...

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend all!
