DYS T-Shirt Design Contest

Pump up your creativity and design a t-shirt for DYS to promote Diabetes Awareness Month this November! The shirts will be sold to raise money for DYS. The design will go on the front of our t-shirts and the contest is open to youth no older than 18 who live with type 1 diabetes in our 34 county service area. The winning design will be chosen by several DYS board members and the winner will receive a $100 Visa gift card along with a free t-shirt. All entries must be received by Friday, September 11. Designs should be emailed to Morgan@dys4kids.org or if hand drawn, dropped off or mailed to the DYS office. If you choose to hand draw a design do not fold it.

2020 JDRF One Walk on Wheels

Join JDRF and our local T1D communities as we walk to turn Type One into Type None! Each year, JDRF One Walk brings together more than 900,000 people across the country to change the future for everyone living with type 1 diabetes (T1D). This fun, family–friendly event gives people with T1D, their loved ones, companies and the local community the opportunity to come together, create change and positively impact lives of those living with T1D.

This year we have changed the format of the walk to a car processional to accommodate social distancing. Join us to make it safer and easier to live with this disease, until we create a world without T1D.
