The American Diabetes Association provides community-based education programs, protects the rights of people with type I and type II diabetes and funds critical research for a cure to these diseases which affect more than 26 million people living in the U.S. “We all know someone living with diabetes and we chose this cause as one we would support this year as a team,” says Chris Chodnicki. “Supporting our local ADA chapter has brought about some friendly competition among the Baltimore tech community which makes this even more fun and we look forward to riding as a team and one community on May 3 during Tour de Cure.”
Sotta Sopra, located on North Charles Street, will serve as the venue for the r2i team’s biggest fundraising effort. Executive Chef Riccardo Bosio shares, “We look forward to hosting a fun event for a local business that will have a much broader impact for the deserving diabetes community. It’s our pleasure to have even created special menu items for this happy hour event.”
