Mark J. Schmidt of Gloria Zastko Realtors Riding to Stop Diabetes

North Brunswick, NJ – April 21, 2015 – Mark J. Schmidt, broker-associate with Gloria Zastko Realtors in North Brunswick, will be riding in the Tour de Cure, a cycling event to raise money to further the mission of the American Diabetes Association.  The ride will be taking place June 14th in Princeton.
Schmidt first became involved in the ride years ago.  “My friend, Pat, told me he was going to ride in the 10-mile Tour de Cure,” said Schmidt.  “I had never ridden a bike for 10 miles before, so I figured I would sign up and we could ride together.”  After training for a few months, he raised the necessary amount of money to qualify to ride, and the ride went off without a hitch.
Since riding in his first Tour de Cure, many things have changed.  Now, Schmidt rides exclusively in the 30-mile Tour de Cure.  He also has expanded his fundraising efforts to include email campaigns, promotion through social media, and building a buzz through online videos.  Anything that brings more attention to the Tour de Cure and the American Diabetes Association, Schmidt will do it.
“Nearly 29 million children and adults are diagnosed with diabetes, and the disease can have serious complications,” said Schmidt.  “I realized that many of the tools I use to market and sell the homes I list could be used to promote the Tour de Cure, and the response has been fantastic.”
Schmidt has also given his time directly to the American Diabetes Association, meeting with the manager of the Princeton ride to discuss marketing efforts, as well as producing a video for other Tour de Cure participants about how easy it is to use the fundraising platform the ADA provides.
