Accu-Chek Cyclebetes is rolling!

To all Team H2V Supporters:

The Legacy of Team H2V lives!

Accu-Chek Cyclebetes 2009 is the legacy of Team H2V – built on the themes of the founding event - community, responsibility, community and promise

Accu-Chek Cyclebetes 2009 promises to be extraordinary.

The Provincial Relay – (August – September) 5 person provincial teams pass the ‘torch’ - a vial of lifesaving insulin at provincial borders.

The Secondary 24 hour Spin-a-Thon (February – March) students have the opportunity to develop true leadership potential by hosting an event in their community.

The Elementary Lap-a-Thon (April – May) students get active and moving and learn socially responsible values from The Legacy Builders.

Currently we are launching the Secondary Spin- a-thon and Elementary Lap-a-Thon to schools across Canada and the United States. As supporters of Team H2V you can help! These are outstanding, innovative programs that not only build awareness and generate funds for the JDRF but aim to prepare an entire generation for healthy, productive, successful living.

We will be forwarding 2 more blog posts – they provide information on both programs. Take a look – explore and then please forward, by cutting and pasting into an email program, to friends and local educators so that they too will be made aware of this extraordinary resource!
Together we can build a healthy, positive future.
Delivering on a Promise. Cure Juvenile Diabetes

Live to ride.
