Princeton Tour de Cure & Step Out 2015
The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is gearing up for our Princeton Tour de Cure, a cycling event, and Step out, Walk to stop diabetes. These events, not only encourage camaraderie and healthy living, but also raise funds for the ADA. Every dollar that is raised will help prevent and cure the disease that affects over 29 million Americans. However, the event requires the support of volunteers in order to be a success! Please consider volunteering for this important cause. Volunteers are needed on June 14, 2015 to help with the event. The Princeton Tour de Cure will take place in the Novo Nordisk campus at 800 Scudders Mill Road, Plainsboro, New Jersey.
It is a great opportunity for college students to showcase their volunteer hours for a good cause and also for anyone who is looking to make an impression by working for a meaningful cause.
We will need volunteers in the following capacities. We also encourage anyone who wants to take up a leadership role and head a respective unit.
