On October 28, I participated in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundations’ Walk for the Cure. Over 2000 families took a 5 kilometer scenic walk around the Cook College campus of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Together we raised almost $200,000 toward research to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes.
There were quite a few families who entered the event as teams complete with T-shirt and banner designs. A few of the corporate sponsors also had team walking in the event. Corporate sponsors provided food (QuikChek) and numerous product samples (Splenda) product There was music and prizes and other entertainment for the kids..
