Admirals Set Roster for 2010
Milwaukee, WI—The Milwaukee Admirals hockey club announces their team for 2010. They can barely skate and have never played organized hockey, but they can ride a bike and they all have strong desire to fight diabetes.
On June 19, 2010 this team, which is not yet complete, will ride in the American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure. The Tour, which starts and finishes at Grafton High School in Grafton, WI, is an annual bicycle ride to raise funds to help fight diabetes.
Currently the Milwaukee Admirals team his at twelve: Kelly Adyniec, Carol Albor, Jeffrey Bergman, John Bitter, Jay Dillig, Scott Galaska, Lynn Hagen, Dana Kositzky, Derek Surratt, Deborah Vogt, and Jeff Vogt.
“We’re kind of like the Dirty Dozen, except our enemy is diabetes and I’m no Lee Marvin,” said team captain John Bitter. “We’re excited to ride and help fight a disease that affects one out of ten American adults, but we could use more help – help in the form of more riders joining the team or people donating to the team.”
