Having fun at Tour de Cure

More than 1,400 bike riders from throughout Chicagoland came out for the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure ride, which was held in Aurora. Together, they helped raise more than $700,000. In addition to the riders, the event drew a crowd of family and friends who cheered the riders on as they passed the finish line.

Team Anixter raised more than $12,200 ($10,000 from employees and company matching funds) and landed on the top 10 list of corporate team donations over $10,000. Nineteen Anixter employees joined the ride, choosing routes ranging from 10 to 100 miles. Ted Fullerton, team lead, Mike Coleman and Ira Greenberg completed the 100-mile course, battling rain, high heat and humidity. Go team!
