This year TexasCarsDirect.com and several of its employees teamed up to sponsor a rider for the Tour de Cure bike ride in Carey, North Carolina. The ride is an annual event that raises money to help stop diabetes. Tour de Cure is put together by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and took place on the 4th and 5th of June. Last year, more than 50,000 cyclists in 80 Tour events raised nearly $17 million to support the mission of the ADA: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. The TexasCarsDirect rider, Collin Turner, completed the one day, 50 mile ride and helped raise hundreds of dollars for the cause.
