We hope that you will join us in this great event to help raise funds for our local nonprofit that has been part of the central Ohio community for over 53 years.
100% of our funding comes from the community to help central Ohioans living with diabetes detect their condition, prevent onset and complications, and learn to live well with the challenge of diabetes. We do not receive funding from national agencies.

We provide services to all individuals, regardless of their ability to pay:

Youth and teen day camp and residential camps
Blood glucose screenings to identify undetected/uncontrolled diabetes

Financial information and emotional support programs (Type 1 and Type 2).
