Friday, March 21, Cario Middle School students stepped out into the sunshine to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Students first watched a video presentation on how Type 1 affected one local family, building their knowledge about this chronic disease that affects every major organ in the body.
Students learned about the signs and symptoms of Type 1 diabetes, the differences between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, and the research that JDRF is doing to improve the lives of people with diabetes. The camaraderie and sunshine proved to be beneficial for all as students raised more than $2,500 to help combat this disease.
