Our Team is Making a difference. You can too! 

Our team is supporting the American Diabetes Association because we want to make a difference.  We want to lead.  We want to inspire.  We want to empower. We want a cure!

Once again this year a team from Christ the King led by captain Lynn Lenort will be participating in the Twin Cities Tour de Cure.  The team is scheduled for the 18 mile circuit to be completed Saturday, June 2nd, 2018.  You can participate in three ways; as a fellow rider, by making a pledge towards an individual rider, or a pledge towards the CTKB team in general. Donations may be made online or to any team member.  This years team (so far) includes Lynn, Dan and Alex Lenort, Jan Gasterland and Peggy Indahl.   Click HERE
