Three Rides, One Purpose

NorthBay Healthcare will host its Sixth Annual Ride to Defeat Diabetes—or R2D2—Sunday, September 10, when it rolls out of the parking lot at NorthBay VacaValley Hospital, 1000 Nut Tree Road.

The event's goal is to raise funds for the NorthBay Center for Diabetes & Endocrinology, and at the same time raise awareness in the community about the severity of the diabetes crisis in Solano County, and to provide educational resources for the community.

There are three separate rides, a 10-mile jaunt through the outskirts of Vacaville neighborhoods, just perfect for families and children, and a more challenging 25-mile and 60-mile rides for more serious cyclists.

The 60-mile ride departs at 7:30 a.m., followed by the 25-mile ride at 9:00 a.m. Participants in the 10-mile ride will roll out at 10:00 a.m.

Ok, is there more?

Organizers are asking each person who signs up to ride along the 10 mile route to pledge to raise $10 (not required) for the NorthBay Center for Diabetes and Endocrinology. For the 25-mile and 60-mile rides, participants have the option to pledge $100.00* (not required) in donations. Checks can be made out to NorthBay Healthcare Foundation, with Diabetes in the memo field.

T-Shirts, a raffle ticket and lunch will be provided for registered riders if signed up by August 27.

*Any donation will be accepted…

Rides start at $15 + plus donations. Join us in Vacaville on September 10! and help defeat diabetes

  • Aside from being fun, this ride is a great opportunity to put an emphasis on the value of good diet and exercise, and raise money for local education projects related to diabetes.
