Adwar Casting’s Chief Financial Officer, Keith Adwar, received unwelcome news 3 years ago when he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. The diagnosis changed his life in many ways. He began to exercise more frequently, and he developed a passion for biking.
In 2011, Adwar signed up to ride in the American Diabetes Association’s annual Tour De Cure in Riverhead, New York. He encouraged his friends and family to join him and Team Adwar was created. Together they raised over $12,500.
This year, Team Adwar continued to assist the American Diabetes Association with its mission to cure diabetes, and Adwar Casting sponsored the team. With record-breaking fundraising by Keith’s daughter Julia, who raised over $9,000 as her bat mitzvah project. Team Adwar raised over $36,000, breaking the record for the highest family/friend team on Long Island.
Team Adwar 2012 had over 50 riders, and included Adwar Casting employees, family members and friends. The weather held out for most of the ride, and all participants had a wonderful time.
