Walk for Diabetes A Huge Success!

On behalf of the families impacted by this T1D….Thank you! 
 
Every year, about 15,000 children are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, a disease that drastically alters the lives of youth across America. Through the kick off and health lessons our students learned more about the effects of Type 1 Diabetes, as well as dispelling myths about the disease and  the differences between Type 1 and Type 2. The Kids Walk also helps our students living with T1D overcome social barriers surrounding Type 1 Diabetes too, as their classmates come to better understand the illness.  
 
Lastly – the fundraising efforts were amazing.  Over $4,000 was raised for JDRF to put towards research and a cure.  I hope you agree it was the perfect way to start the day today.  It also sent a strong message of support and love to Miles and Esme.  Kids helping kids- what can be better than that!
