Profil Institute Assembles Team of 92 and Raises More Than $27,000 for American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure in San Diego

SAN DIEGO, April 5, 2016 – Profil Institute for Clinical Research, Inc., clinical research organization (CRO) focused on diabetes, obesity and NAFLD/NASH, announced today its 12th year as a corporate sponsor of the American Diabetes Association’s (ADA) Tour de Cure and a team of 92 participants fundraising for this event as members of the Profil Peddlers Team.

The Profil Peddler Team raised more than $27,000 for this year’s Tour de Cure.  Profil Peddlers are easy to recognize at the event with their signature blue jerseys. Although many Profil Peddlers are employees of Profil Institute, it is not a requirement to be on the team. Any one is welcome to join – whether they are new to cycling, a highly experienced cyclist, or not a cyclist at all, but wishing to fundraise to support the cause.

“This year represents our largest team ever with a record 92 registered Profil Peddlers. Many of those individuals are cyclists participating in the Tour this weekend. Other Profil Peddler team members may not even own a bike, but are fundraising and supporting their fellow teammates. The common thread among all Profil Peddlers is the passion to make a difference in their community and in the lives of people affected by diabetes,” said Kristin Stanley, Profil Peddler Team Captain and employee of Profil Institute.

2016 marks Profil Institute’s 12th year as a corporate sponsor of the ADA’s Tour de Cure and organizer of the Profil Peddler Team.  Profil Institute also supports and organizes teams for a number of other events, including JDRF’s Walk to Cure Diabetes and ADA’s Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes, both of which take place in the fall each year.

“The enthusiasm and fundraising success of the Profil Peddler Team is truly inspirational. I’m proud to stand among the Profil Peddler teammates in support of this outstanding event benefiting the American Diabetes Association and the very people for whom our clinical research will hopefully make a significant impact,” said Dr. Marcus Hompesch, Profil Institute CEO and a Profil Peddler.

The Tour de Cure will take place this Saturday, April 9 beginning at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The Tour de Cure is a series of fundraising cycling events held in 44 states nationwide to support the mission of the ADA to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by the disease.
