West View Elementary is hosting a fundraiser for JDRF, the leading global nonprofit dedicated to funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research, from March 8-22nd. We have many students at our school with type 1 diabetes, and we’re excited to support them and help find a cure!
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a chronic autoimmune condition that makes the body unable to produce insulin, which is the hormone that regulates blood sugar. JDRF is leading the way for T1D research with the goal of creating a world without T1D. With your support, let’s knock out T1D! Students will collect donations at home and can bring donations to their homeroom class on any day from March 8 through March 19. Students will also receive a West View paper sneaker to color – be sure to color it, bring it to class, and enter the coloring contest by March 22nd for a cool prize! Each homeroom class will add up all of their donations and the winning classroom will win a Pizza Party! Good luck to all of the classes and THANK YOU for helping to knock out T1D!
