Did you know that as many as three million Americans have type 1 diabetes and about 15,000 children and 15,000 adults are diagnosed each year with type 1 diabetes?
JDRF is an organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research and Student Council would like for McDowell School to raise money to help find a cure for type 1 diabetes.
Next week from Monday to Thursday, the Student Council will be selling JDRF paper sneakers for a donation of $3 during lunch. Those students who purchase a sneaker will be able to participate in a JDRF awareness walk on Friday, October 7th during WIN period.
To “kick off” our fundraiser, we will be having Spirit Week next week:
Monday: True Blue Day (wear blue, the official color of JDRF)
Tuesday: Twin Tuesday
Wednesday: Wacky Sock Wednesday
Thursday: Decade Day (dress from your favorite decade)
Friday: Brave Spirit Day (wear your Braves’ colors)
We hope all of you will participate!
