Remington College of Nursing’s Student Nurses Association (RSNA) participated in the American Diabetes Association’s annual Tour de Cure event in Orlando, Florida, on Sunday, March 17, 2013. Tour de Cure is a cycling event designed to raise funds for the American Diabetes Association (ADA).

Our nursing students were responsible for coordinating, staffing, and managing one of the rest sites on the bike ride. Different cycling routes included 10-, 25-, 50-, 70-, and 101-mile tracks. Participants selected a route that best fit their own fitness and fundraising goals. The Orlando event included 97 teams and almost 1,200 riders and raised a grand total of more than $369,000 this year.

Remington College of Nursing Assistant Dean and RSNA Faculty Advisor Anthony Pennington said, “RSNA is consistently looking for ways to be involved in our community, and our students do a wonderful job in finding opportunities to help.  We continue to be impressed with their dedication and hard work.”

According to the ADA, the serious and life-threatening disease called diabetes has reached epidemic proportions in the U.S., with nearly 26 million adults and children living with the disease.
