Who we are

RIDE, FIGHT, CURE

Every year, Cure Chasers crisscross the US to raise funds in the fight against acute and chronic diseases. Riding for Leaukemia and Lymphoma Society in Lake Tahoe; LaCrosse Wisconsin for JDRF; Indianapolis for the 24 Foundation, the American Diabetes Association and Bike MS; as well as many other rides here in the Midwest. Some even made the daring trip to take on Mount Mitchell in North Carolina, where everything you know about yourself and riding a bike are challenged to the core.

Almost every weekend starting in late March through October, Cure Chasers take to the streets of central Indiana to train, fund raise and create awareness for our cause.

At Cure Chasers, our mission is - through cycling - to promote the power of health and fitness and support non-profit organizations who are working on cures and treatments for acute and chronic diseases.

This year we will RIDE for our health and to create awareness. We will FIGHT for those battling various diseases and cancer. We will work for a CURE by raising funds and providing financial support to organizations who care for patients and their families and for those who are working on critical research for these conditions.

    In case you haven't heard the news, there will be no 24 Hour Ride this year due to COVID-19.


    We're working on plans for a pivot event labor day weekend instead.  Perhaps a ride/run/walk, but definitely a party.  I'll let you know as I learn more.


    The ride should happen again in 2021.

    Even though we didn't setup a Cure Chasers team this year, there is a Virtual "Tour de Cure" on Saturday June 6.

    • There is no registration fee for new team members to join – that can include family and friends.
    • There is no minimum fundraising amount so we are encouraging participants to keep fundraising for those with diabetes but they can participate at any dollar amount.
    • To qualify for a Tour de Cure t-shirt, adults need to fundraise to $100 and children 12 and younger need to fundraise to $50.
    • Then, on June 6, we will have programming on Facebook Live.
    • We ask our participants to wear any ADA or Tour de Cure or red shirts they may have and walk, run or ride in their neighborhoods.
    • We ask that participants post a before and after photo on June 6.
    • Register at www.diabetes.org/indianatour

     

    Also, on May 2, we are doing a virtual training ride of 23 miles that starts at 11am; first 10 cyclists who complete it get cycling gear  – details here:  www.diabetes.org/intrainingride

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Coach Scott

    (I have other plans June 6th, but that ride might be cancelled anyway so I might be doing Virtual ride in support of Tour De Cure)

    As many of you know, our indoor sessions have been cancelled for rest of week/month/winter.


    Weekly Tuesday and Thursday outdoors which would start 2nd week of April are postponed until further notice.


    I got on the trainer tonight for a quick 20min HIIT sprint session, got my 10 “Shugars” push-ups in, plan to commute again to work tomorrow as roads are super quiet.


    If plan to ride outside check out link below for prior safety measures.  


    Be safe my friends, hopefully things will be back to “normal” in couple months.
