Riders raise money to fight diabetes

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Western New Yorkers are really helping in the fight against diabetes, and they’ll be recognized for those efforts Tuesday night.

The American Diabetes Association will honor at least 20 “champions” from the Tour De Cure. Champions have raises at least $1,000 to support their ride. Many of them are red riders, which means they are living with the disease.

News 4’s Teresa Weakley will be hosting the Tour De Cure on Saturday. It’s expected that more than 900 riders this year will raise more than  $415,000 for the American Diabetes Association.
