Prince Hall Shriners of Moussa Temple No. 106 supported the American Diabetes Association's Annual Tour de Cure and Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes held at San Marcos High School on Oct. 28.

The Tour de Cure is the only cycling event held in Texas dedicated to finding a cure for diabetes. The event offered a memorable day of cycling and fun through the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes takes place across the country and is the premiere walk event supporting all people living with diabetes.

Cyclists could choose from 15-mile, 30-mile, 50-mile, 70-mile and 100-mile rides. One special “Miracle Mile” ride was also available.

Prince Hall Shriners of Moussa Temple No. 106 help support the American Diabetes Association's Annual Tour de Cure and Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes during October.

The Tour de Cure is more than just a cycling event, it’s a day packed with excitement and energy where riders of all levels join forces in the fight to Stop Diabetes and raise critical funds for diabetes research, education and advocacy in support of the American Diabetes Association.

The ADA’s Step Out Walk take steps to improve the health of the community. Step Out participants commit to walk and raise money in this inspirational event not only because nearly 30 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because they more than likely know someone who is living with the everyday challenges of diabetes.

Moussa Temple has participated in the past several Tour de Cures and Step Out Walks, which allows nobles and daughters the opportunity to support a great cause and be highly visible in their community.
