BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — This weekend hundreds of cyclists will roll into Montevallo for the 2014 Tour de Cure. Once again, CBS42 is proud to be a sponsor of the event.
James Johnson will be riding this weekend. He’s a diabetic and riding in the Tour de Cure is not only a great way to help manage his illness, it’s also a way to help find a cure for diabetes. “I realized that the funds raised, the money that was raised was really returned back to Alabama for research and basically it would help me not only with managing diabetes but hopefully having a cure for diabetes in the future,” says Johnson.
There’s still time to sign up for the Tour de Cure. It will be held this Saturday at the University of Montevallo.
You can ride anywhere from five miles to more than a hundred. The registration fee is $25.
