DURHAM, Conn. (WTNH)– Hundreds of bike riders took to the streets of Connecticut Sunday in an effort to fight diabetes.

The event was part of the American diabetes association’s “Tour De Cure.” Riders participated in races as long as 100 miles.

Many of them were people with diabetes themselves.

“I was diagnosed a year and a half ago with type one diabetes and I didn’t want anyone to know I was diagnosed until I decided I needed to become more comfortable with my disease. So I got involved with the American Diabetes Association and I joined the Tour De Cure. This is my second year riding in it,” said Mary D’Orvilliers, race participant.

Officials with the American Diabetes Association tell News 8 it’s their goal is to raise $200,000 with Sunday’s races.

All the money raised will go to diabetes research.
