Adventures for the Cure chronicles the incredible, 6,500-mile trek made by 3 young men across the US on single-speed, fixed gear bicycles in order to raise money and awareness for diabetes, and to help disabled children in Kenya. In particular, it focuses on two stories: Adam, who as a Type-1 diabetic has to manage his illness while riding up to 150 miles a day through rugged terrain; and the touching stories of two diabetic children the group meets along the way. The film is narrated by three-time Tour de France winner, Greg LeMond.
