Help Make a Difference in the fight against diabetes!
Each mile I ride, and the funds I raise will be used in the fight to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
No matter how small or large, your generous gift will help improve the lives of more than 23.6 million Americans who suffer from diabetes, in the hope that future generations can live in a world without this disease. Together, we can all make a difference!
Thank you for making a generous contribution to this cause that is so important to me!
A Little Something About Myself
My name is Art Villarreal and have been cycling for about 9 months now. I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in June 2006, and have been struggling to maintain control. Not only do I have Type 2 Diabetes, but my mother and father also have the disease.
I realized the health benefits of riding my bicycle rather quickly. I noticed how well it helped me manage my diabetes and my weight. I was able to cut back on my medications and felt a noticable difference healthwise. Please help sponsor me in my second event. My goal is to complete 63 miles during my ride for this event.

Thank you in advance for your support.
