Hearthstone Health and Fitness is already gearing up for next year’s Tour de Cure – a cycling event hosted in Easton to raise money for diabetes research and local community programming. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) will hold its 3rd Annual Chesapeake Bay Tour de Cure signature fundraising event, Saturday, May 17, in Talbot County.
“We are so pleased to welcome Hearthstone Health and Fitness back for the third year as our Presenting Sponsor. Hearthstone embodies the mission of the American Diabetes Association by inspiring and supporting people to make those critical lifestyle changes that can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. Dave Tuthill and his wife, Martha, conceived of Hearthstone out of Dave’s personal wellness journey. His own story is so inspiring and his passion is to support others who want to live a healthier life”, said Kathy Rogers, executive director of the American Diabetes Association Maryland regional office.
More than 750 people are expected to join forces in the fight to Stop Diabetes®, which is now the 6th leading cause of death and an epidemic that disproportionately affects Maryland and the Eastern Shore.
The Chesapeake Bay Tour de Cure is a great opportunity for families, companies and the community to participate in a healthy activity, have a lot of fun and enjoy the gorgeous landscape of the Eastern Shore, while helping us to raise awareness and critical funds for diabetes research, education and advocacy to improve the lives of all people affected by this disease.
