Join your Ascension Via Christi colleagues, CEO at this year’s Tour de Cure

The American Diabetes Association’s annual Tour de Cure will be held on Saturday, July 20, at Hartman Arena and you’re invited to join Ascension Via Christi CEO Don King by riding, walking or running at this family-friendly event – or volunteering to help or cheering on those who do.

You can sign up for the 63-, 30- or 13-mile family paved-surface ride, 40-mile gravel ride or the 5K walk-run and join your colleagues before or after the event in the Team Ascension Via Christi hospitality area inside the arena, where activities will include an interactive health and wellness area, activity zone for kids, a beer garden and an after-party featuring The Arnold Palmers. 

Cost to participate in the event-day bike rides is $20 before July 1 and includes breakfast and lunch. There is no cost for the 5K run/walk.

To help riders prepare, there will be a 10-mile training ride around downtown Wichita starting at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 29, at Aero Plains Brewing; lunch will be available for a donation.
