Local cyclists are looking to raise money for the American Diabetes Association to help stop diabetes with the Tour de Cure.
The event will take place June 7 at URI and they are looking to raise $300,000.
Today also marks the American Diabetes Association Alert Day. Everyone is encouraged to take the Diabetes Risk Test to see if they are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Many folk are at risk, but are not aware.
Charles Iacono was here on The Rhode Show to talk about the event.
