Tour de Cure Fundraiser 05/09/09

This Saturday at the Park Bar (2040 Park Ave.) riders from the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure cycling event are hosting "RIDE it, PARK it, ROCK it", a fundraiser to benefit the ADA.

Meet at the bar at 1 p.m. and then head out for a casual 8-10 mile bike ride around downtown Detroit starting at 1:30 p.m.  Discounted bike rentals are available through Wheelhouse Detroit.  The ride is being lead by Todd Scott of the Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance and will highlight various trails and green spaces in the city.  Following the ride will be drinks at the bar.  The Park Bar is donating a portion of their proceeds back to the ADA.  There is a $10 donation per rider and each rider will receive one ticket for a post-ride drawing.  There are  several cool items to give away!  Additional tickets for the giveaway can also be purchased at the bar.  For more information please contact Anika Halladay at ahalladay@diabetes.org or 248-433-3830, ext. 6694.

Mark your calendars for the 2009 Tour de Cure on Sunday, June 14, 2009, at beautiful Island Lake Recreation Area in Brighton. REGISTER ONLINE NOW at www.diabetes.org/tour.
