Cesarz Joins Bike Ride For Diabetes Research
Southeast Wisconsin Tour de Cure charity bike ride will be held on June 16.
Milwaukee County Supervisor Paul Cesarz is participating in the American Diabetes Association's Southeast Wisconsin Tour de Cure charity bike ride on June 16 and is inviting residents to join him.
"I'm planning to ride the longest distance, 100 km, to honor the legacy of my father, who passed away in part due to diabetes complications last July," Cesarz said in a news release. "I'm excited to join thousands of other riders from across the country to raise money to further the mission of the American Diabetes Association."
The ride will be held in Grafton. Anyone interested can visit Cesarz's personal Tour de Cure webpage to donate or register to participate.
"Nearly 26 million Americans are living with diabetes. If current trends continue, one out of three children will face a future with diabetes. This is a startling statistic," Cesarz said. "As I wrap up my tenure on the County Board, I'm asking anyone who reads this news release to help me reach my fundraising goal by becoming a rider yourself or by supporting me in my goal to raise $1,000. Together, we will help stop diabetes."
Franklin Alderman Steve Taylor was recently elected to the seat now held by Cesarz, who decided not to run for re-election. The district covers most of Oak Creek and Franklin and all of Hales Corners.
