A Mile of Hope for Diabetes

by: Kelsey Grau Community Editor

In its 12th year, “Team Euphemia Haye” is still going strong.

Close to 30 people began their Easter weekend with the annual walk in Joan M. Durante on Saturday, April 19. The walk is meant to raise money and awareness for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, or JDRF.

“We became involved with Juvenile Diabetes when Kate was diagnosed and we were all feeling a bit helpless about that,” said D’Arcy Arpke. “It’s a wonderful organization that really reached out to us. So, we formed our walk team and a lot of these people have been walking with us all these years.”
