Tour de Clydesdale raises funds for diabetes, cancer research
The ride started and ended at the 3rd Turn Oldham Gardens, and bikers could do a 16 or 30-mile course.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Oldham County drivers shared the roads with dozens of bikers on Sunday to raise money for children with diabetes.
Dozens of cyclists with the Clydesdale Athletics Club held a benefit for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
The Tour de Clydesdale started and ended at the 3rd Turn Oldham Gardens, and bikers could do a 16 or 30-mile course.
WDRB spoke with one of the organizers, who said he did the ride in honor of his daughter.
"You talk to people who have had the disease for 20 to 30 years, the advancements are insane but even in the past eight years you can see where research they are helping fund has made lives easier for kids and families dealing with the disease," Joe Blazis said.
The ride doesn't just raise funds for diabetes.
The Clydesdale Athletics Club has also raised more than $100,000 for cancer research.
