Wesley College students volunteered at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Southern Delaware Community One Walk on Sunday September 30 at Killen’s Pond State Park. Students representing service groups, athletes and various majors all helped with the event and the goal to create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
The Community One Walk helps raise money that supports life–changing breakthroughs that give hope to everyone impacted by this disease. Wesley education majors, nursing majors, track and field athletes and volunteers from the Alpha Phi Omega all came out to the venue and volunteered to help as well as some faculty and staff.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle—and it’s serious and stressful to manage. There is nothing you can do to prevent T1D and there is currently no cure. To view pictures of the event, visit Wesley’s flickr page.
