Culligan Continues Diabetes Water Donations in Pittsburgh

Culligan of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, kept cyclists hydrated by donating 2,520 bottles of water to the American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure cycling event in Pittsburgh, PA on July 23rd.  The Culligan dealership participated by donating water to aid the fight against diabetes and educating participants on the importance of clean water health benefits.

“The Culligan team was very energetic and uplifting to the cyclists.  We enjoyed partnering with the ADA, not only handing out water, but also fruit, snacks, and sunscreen.  The riders still had 16.4 miles to go by the time they reached our rest stop, so our donated water was put to great use,” said Kim Adams, General Manager of Culligan of Pittsburgh.

The event was very meaningful to Culligan of Pittsburgh, as some of the attending staff members have diabetic family members.  “My father, who has been a diabetic for over 30 years, loved that our Culligan family was working with the ADA,” Kim said.

Over $145,000 was raised for ADA through the event, with 251 cyclists and many more bystanders in attendance.  The Tour de Cure is the largest cycling event for diabetes in the country. Each year, nearly 50,000 people participate in Tour de Cure events in 80 cities across the county, raising nearly $30 million dollars to support the mission. The event is a unique opportunity for businesses, clubs, friends and families to come together to form teams with a vision of a life free of diabetes and all its burdens.
