Young Professional Leadership Council Kickoff

YPLCToday I am here from the American Diabetes Association’s Young Professional Leadership Council (YPLC)! Who are we? We are young professionals helping with the movement to Stop Diabetes. Our volunteer leaders have the opportunity to work together as a team to lead key fund raising, strategic partnerships, events, advocacy, community engagement, and developing an effective volunteer base.

I’m excited to announce our new series, “I ride because…” Watch out for our weekly articles in anticipation for the Tour de Cure! With this series you will hear about what it’s like to ride the 100 miles (the longest distance at the Tour!), the History of the Tour and of course, personal stories talking about why riders ride in the Tour. We can’t wait to share with you!
