Diabetes has been in the news a lot lately. Just this week, News10NBC learned that doctors across the nation are seeing an alarming rise in the number of Type 1 Diabetes cases and the U.S. has experienced a dramatic rise in diabetes cases, both Type 1 and Type 2 in the past few decades.

Research is needed to fight this disease and there is a big local effort to raise $1 million at next year's Tour De Cure race.

Lia Lando spoke with the chairman of the race, Tom DeRoller, and youth ambassador, Paige Gottorff, during Thursday's Roc City Tonight. To see the interview, press play on the video player.
