My son "T" has been participating since July 1st with our local pharmacy along with 6 other T1D kids to raise awareness of T1D, and $$ for JDRF. They have had a professional photo shoot, they have done a local county fair parade, they have done 4 radio remotes to promote awareness/raise donations. This went from July 1st to August 31st.... And guess who collected the most donations for the pharmacy/JDRF ??? MY SON !!! He LOVED promoting/raiseing awareness. It has brought him out of his shy about D-ness. And he has met other kids with D...since we dont have to many around us. He has met great people too along the way. He won the prize of 2 FRONT ROW tickets to see Bret tonight !! The other kids also received 2 tickets a piece, but closer to the back. I told him he could choose ANYONE to sit in the front with him...his girlfriend, a friend...anyone. He thought about it for a couple days. Then he chose me !! He said that since I do so much for him, and take care of him at night, that I deserved to go up front too. Bret is doing a meet/greet with all the kids before the show too. He(Bret) was on our local radio station yesterday and mentioned raffling off a signed guitar from him to support the pharmacy efforts for JDRF. Bret also mentioned possibly sending a few of the kids to D camp and paying for it for them. Needless to say, we are all on cloud 9. *I'll update ya tomorrow how it all was!!!! WHoo Hoo !!
