Medical staff and other personnel from Erlanger Health System came together to show their support by raising funds for diabetes research and education in Chattanooga’s Tour de Cure.
Through their efforts, Erlanger’s team of 27 riders raised over $5,600 and earned the second place title for most raised funds for a corporate team.
The Tour de Cure is a series of fundraising cycling events held in 44 states nationwide to benefit the American Diabetes Association. During this year’s event in Chattanooga, participants had the choice of riding in the 10-mile family ride or the 18, 25, 62 or 100-mile races. Funds raised during Tour de Cure go to research to find a cure for diabetes, helping people who have diabetes live happier and healthier lives, education, awareness, advocacy and support.
