Every year CS3 Technology pulls together to support the American Diabetes Association’s largest fundraiser of the year, the Tour de Cure. Donations are used for diabetes research, education, and advocacy.
Brandi Clymer, CS3’s HR Consulting Manager and Red Rider, is the Team Leader. She began supporting the Tour de Cure in 2005, and helped CS3 begin the annual tradition. “After being diagnosed I wanted to get involved and find a way to personally contribute to the efforts of finding a cure,” Clymer stated. “I’m involved every year because the Tour de Cure isn’t just any bike ride – it is an inspirational event that brings so many people together.”
The team’s goal is for 100% participation from all employees – a goal we reached last year and hope to reach again. Employees can sign up to ride in the event, donate to the team, or register as a volunteer on the day of the event. Everyone is encouraged to get involved somehow. CS3 is jump-starting every rider’s fund with a $26 donation to represent the estimated 26 million Americans affected by diabetes.
Each rider must raise a minimum of $200 prior to the day of the Tulsa event. To support Team CS3 and our own Brandi Clymer in the 2015 Tulsa Tour de Cure by riding or donating, visit the official Tour de Cure team page.
