Cannon School Kicks Off JDRF Kids Walk Program

March 25, 2015

jdrf1

Forty children are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes each day in the United States—the equivalent of an entire classroom of students. Right here at Cannon, we have six students who deal with T1D each and every day. It is one of the most costly and chronic diseases, and children with T1D will never outgrow it.

Cannon School is proud to bring the JDRF Kids Walk to Cure Diabetes to campus for the first time on Friday, April 10. Today we kicked off the program with a fun assembly which included plenty of special guests, dancing, and speakers who gave us an idea of what it is like to live with this disease day in and day out. Students also watched a video which gave them some background about the disease. This video can be viewed here.

Each child is coming home today with information about the JDRF Walk, as well as donation envelopes. Dollars collected will be donated to JDRF and targeted towards funding new technologies to dramatically improve the treatment of T1D.

We thank you for your support of this worthy cause!

Cannon School to Host JDRF Walk

March 24, 2015

JDRF-Walk-Logo

Each year, more than 15,000 children are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in the United States alone. That breaks down to be forty children each day. While diagnosis most often occurs in childhood and adolescence, it can and does strike adults as well. It is one of the most costly chronic diseases, and children with diabetes will never outgrow it. To stay alive, they must take multiple insulin injections or use an insulin pump, and they test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood about six times a day.

Insulin is not a cure! That is why Cannon School is proud to bring the JDRF Kids Walk to Cure Diabetes to campus for the first time. With each child’s participation, he/she will learn what it means to help fellow classmates with diabetes by becoming an advocate for a cure and improving lives.

We will kick off our fundraising efforts on Wednesday, March 25 with an all-school assembly. At that time, we will distribute more information and donation envelopes. All faculty, staff, and students will be participating in the walk. Parents are welcome to join their children on the walk.

Dollars collected will be donated to JDRF and targeted towards funding new technologies to dramatically improve the treatment of type 1 diabetes.

Thank you for your support of this worthy cause.
