RHINEBECK, NY, February 7--Topical BioMedics has formed "Team Topricin" to participate in the 2014 Saratoga Tour de Cure. The company invites others to join their team and is seeking sponsorship donations to Stop Diabetes and raise critical funds for diabetes research, education and advocacy in support of the American Diabetes Association (ADA).
Tour de Cure is the American Diabetes Association's signature fundraising cycling event that raises money to help change the future of diabetes and stop its devastating complications. With strong support from corporate and family teams across the country, this event raises over $26 million annually to find a cure for diabetes and support the ADA's mission.
Tour de Cure participants register and recruit friends, co-workers, and associates to ride and raise money. The day of the event is a chance to ride and to celebrate the fundraising accomplishments of the team and individual participants as well as an opportunity to promote awareness about diabetes and the ADA.
Topical BioMedics teamed up with the ADA's Saratoga 2013 Tour de Cure as a "RED RIDER" Sponsor. A Red Rider is a participant that has Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. Last year's event drew more than 2,400 cyclists from New York, Massachusetts, and Vermont, and raised more than $1 million, making it the second largest fund raising ADA chapter in the country for 2013.
This year, Topical BioMedics increased its support by forming "Team Topricin" to ride during the event, which takes place on June 1, 2014 in Saratoga Springs, NY. The Saratoga riding course ranges from a leisurely 10 mile route to a challenging 100 mile ride, enabling riders of all levels and ages to participate, from occasional riders to experienced cyclists. Routes will feature rest stops with food to fuel the journey and volunteers to cheer riders on. . For those who wish to support the event but not ride an outdoor route, the Tour de Cure offers an exciting indoor "spin cycling" opportunity, as well.

Monies raised fund research for a cure, information to help prevent diabetes, advocacy for those affected by diabetes and public awareness activities.
Nearly 26 million Americans suffer from diabetes, which is the seventh leading cause of death by disease in the United States. "We are honored to join forces with the American Diabetes Association in the fight to Stop Diabetes and help raise critical funds for diabetes research, education and advocacy," says Lou Paradise, Topical BioMedics' president and chief of research.
The company's line of Topricin natural biomedicine formulas are safe for diabetics, and patented for the topical treatment of neuropathy. "Unfortunately, many individuals with diabetes experience neuropathic pain, which can be extremely debilitating," says Mr. Paradise. "Our Foot Therapy formula addresses peripheral neuropathic pain and neuroma, and is soothing and healing to the skin. Importantly, it also reduces the need/dependency for all classifications of oral pain medications, including opiates. "
