We hope you don’t mind a brief detour from instructional design and training topics. The Thiagi Group is sponsoring a cycling team for the 2015 Saratoga Springs Tour de Cure. This is our first year doing anything like this and I am excited to captain our team.
We are riding because we are proud to do our part to stop diabetes. We are committed to riding and raising money in this event because millions and millions of people worldwide suffer from diabetes and we want to do something about it. In fact, I have it. I feel very supported by my friends, family, and colleagues as we work to do our part.
We are asking you to support us. If you are interested in doing so, please click this sentence to donate.
By making a donation you will be helping the American Diabetes Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.
As a team, united in our desire to stop diabetes, we are asking for your support. Please make a donation to anyone on the team, or the team in general. When we bring together dedicated team members and kind donors, the power we have as a group far outweighs what any of us could do alone.
We are determined to reach our team goal, one rider at a time. So let's get in gear and ride to stop diabetes! Thank you so much for your consideration. Even if you don't donate anything, send us your good wishes.
Thank you and best regards.
