SOUTH JORDAN, Utah, May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On Saturday, June 11, 2016, Alliance Health and its corporate team of over thirty riders will be participating as the Premier Red Rider sponsor for the Tour de Cure Utah bike ride and 5K in Brigham City. The $15,000 sponsorship from Alliance Health, as well as all funds raised during Tour de Cure, will be donated to the American Diabetes Association (ADA) for critical diabetes research and to help the ADA in their fight to Stop Diabetes®. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Tour de Cure.
"We're excited about the level of employee participation for this important event, which perfectly matches our corporate mission of improving the lives of people with chronic health conditions, such as diabetes," said Robb Lifferth, Vice President of Human Relations and board member with the Utah ADA. "This cause is near and dear to my heart for personal reasons—my son Ethan was diagnosed with T1D at age seven, and I hope one day we can find a cure for kids like him."
As the Premier Red Rider sponsor, Alliance Health has donated $15,000 to the ADA for diabetes research and advocacy. The company has encouraged employees to ride or run in the race, with an employee goal of raising an additional $7,500. Alliance Health will also be providing 1,000 ice towels for riders and 200 water bottles for Red Riders. This is the company's second year participating in Tour de Cure Utah.
