Participants Sharing Perspectives
Working closely with the ADA’s Kerrie Merz and Nicole Berman along with our counterparts at our sister company YPC Media, Steven James has videotaped participants and sponsors as we spread the word about this truly inspiring event. Two of the riders in the Tour, Claudette Aino
We also had representatives from UR Medicine and Excellus Blue Cross/Blue Shield in to talk about their generous sponsorships and what the Tour de Cure means to their organizations. Dr. Susanne Miedlich gave her views from both a professional viewpoint as an Endocrinologist for UR Medicine as well as a rider in the Tour de Cure. From Excellus, we had Chris Gorecki, Senior VP of Finance, frame the organization’s views on the importance of corporate sponsorship and giving back to the community, and Jill Reilly, an Excellus employee and also a ‘Red Rider’ (someone who has diabetes that rides in the Tour de Cure), offer her team member perspective.
Rochester Leads The Way
The Rochester Tour de Cure is currently the biggest in the nation in terms of participation and money raised, a proud testament to the giving hearts and philanthropic spirit of our community. Diabetes is a pernicious and widespread disease that has touched many lives. But after seeing the efforts and determination of the American Diabetes Association and its wonderful event known as the Tour de Cure up close, we at the Steven James Media Group can’t help but believe that this is a disease that one day will be eradicated.
Stay tuned (and be sure to follow us online) as we switch gears and hear from the perspective of the event’s corporate sponsors and their inspiration behind racing for a cure.
