On June 5, 2017, BT1DF was invited to Boston to tour the research facility at Joslin Diabetes Center and meet with one of the lead researchers, Stephan Kissler and President and CEO Dr. Amenta. Everyone who works at Joslin is as passionate as we are to find a cure for T1D. Here are some photos from our visit. Thank you Joslin! It was an amazing visit!
Thank you to everyone who came out to support us at the Altoona Texas Roadhouse on June 29th.
We made $868.00! Every dollar helps us get one step closer to a cure for T1D. #TAKE1DOWN!!
Blair Type 1 Diabetes Foundation (BT1DF) held its first annual fundraiser, a Mardi Gras themed Gala, on 2/25/17, at the Casino at Lakemont Park. The sold-out crowd enjoyed dinner, raffles, and amazing silent auction items. The master of ceremonies for the evening was retired Col. Cedric Leighton, military analyst for CNN, who share stories about the fall of the Berlin Wall to parenting a child with type 1 diabetes (T1D). We were thrilled to have as our special guest, Miss Idaho 2014, Sierra Sandison, who touched everyone with her life story and how she has learned to overcome obstacles, including T1D. She was the first pageant girl to wear her insulin pump visibly on stage. This year, BT1DF donated $24,000.00 to Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, MA, specifically designated for T1D cure-based research. Joslin is currently in the lead for the cure. Thank you to all who came and/or supported this event. TAKE1DOWN! Thank you ! Susan
