Schwinn Presents Diabetes Fundraisers with New Road Bikes

Jul 12, 2007

Jim Stratton (L) and Nate Pluke (R) receive their new Schwinn Fastbacks from Schwinn's Communications Director Mo Moorman (middle). The two won the bikes from Schwinn, a sponsor of Madison, Wisconsin's Tour de Cure.

Stratton's son, Kevin, was the 2007 event's top fundraiser. Kevin was also the 2006 event's top fundraiser, and had won a bike from Schwinn in '06 for his efforts, so he donated his prize to his father, also a Tour de Cure participant.

Pluke's Tour de Cure team raised the most funds per person, and Pluke won a drawing among his team members to take home the prize Schwinn.

The American Diabetes Association is the nation's leading 501(C)3 nonprofit health organization providing diabetes research, information and advocacy. Tour de Cure is a series of cycling events held in more than 80 cities nationwide to benefit the American Diabetes Association.

The Tour is a ride, not a race, with routes designed for everyone from the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist. Whether you ride 10 miles or 100 miles, you'll travel a route supported from start to finish with rest stops, food to fuel your journey and fans to cheer you on!
