The annual American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure kicked off early Saturday morning at Texas Motor Speedway.
Cyclists are riding ten to 100 miles as a part of an effort to raise money to change the future of diabetes. Money raised goes to research to help stop the disease.
This is the eighth year for Tour de Cure. More than 12,000 riders are participating in North Texas and more than 65,000 other cyclists and volunteers from across the country are also taking part .
Today, there are nearly 26 million Americans who have diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association. Recent estimates project that as many as one in three American adults will have diabetes in 2050, according to the ADA.
