The 2019 Tour de Cure & 5k at UNO Lakefront Arena will be on October 26th. I hope you are excited as we are about a fun-filled community event as well as an opportunity to promote awareness about diabetes and the American Diabetes Association. The event raises funds for research, advocacy, programs and education. We serve 500 kids in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge area with our free youth camps for children living with type 1 diabetes, and children living with or at-risk for type 2 diabetes. Almost $400,000 went towards Louisiana ADA-funded research in diabetes.
This year, the Tour de Cure has expanded to include a ride, run and a walk so even more volunteers are needed.

Objectives of the Archbishop Rummel High School Service Programs:
1. To introduce students to Christ’s imperative to serve one another in the spirit of the school’s mission statement, by fulfilling annual Christian service requirements.
2. To encompass the Lasallian heritage of faith, community, and service encouraging students to be leaders-leaders who serve others, leaders who care embodying the motto of Archbishop Rummel –“To give one’s life for the sheep.”
3. To allow students to understand the Lasallian definition of social justice – Loving people so much that we work to change the structures that violate their dignity.
4. To encourage Archbishop Rummel students to perform service because they want to and not merely fulfill a requirement.
5. To help students develop skills and talents to the best of their ability through service following the mission of the school and LaSallian tradition
6. To establish the Archbishop Rummel High School student body as a force in the assisting of those in need in the community and rebuilding the community by the range and quality of service opportunities offered.
During their high school career, students in this program will develop an orientation towards Christian service by gradually increasing commitments to various service options culminating in their senior year with a final opportunity to reflect on the success and impact their service projects. The hope is that students incorporate service as a core value in their lives and see it at the heart of what it means to be a leader in society.
