Juvenile Diabetes Golf Classic

The 4th Annual Juvenile Diabetes Golf Classic is coming up on Thursday, June 23 at Meadow Gardens Golf Course in Pitt Meadows. It’s time to get your registration in now. There will be prizes, an auction and on-course entertainment. Compete for the longest drive, straightest drive, closest to the pin or hole in one. And once the golfing’s done, enjoy a fantastic steak dinner. There will even be a wine draw – just bring a bottle of your favourite wine to participate.

All proceeds from the event go the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. So far, over $100,000 has been raised and donated through the tournament, which is in memory of Carleigh LeClair. Carleigh was diagnosed with the disease in 2001 and passed away as a result of complications in 2008.

Juvenile diabetes rates are rising by three percent every year. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is driven by the needs of people with diabetes to find a cure. They’re the worldwide leader in funding research to cure type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, but lasts a lifetime. JDRF sets the global agenda for diabetes research, and is the largest charitable funder of, and advocate for, diabetes science worldwide. They need your help to bring a better future to those with the disease.

So head out for a great day of golf and fun, and help those people living with juvenile diabetes all at the same time. Sounds like a win-win proposition to me!
