Diabetes Walk set for April 26

Submitted by Oswego County BOCES

Oswego County BOCES Deaf and Hard of Hearing Club is hosting a Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Kids Walk for Type 1 Diabetes at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 26 at the Mexico High School outdoor track.

The inspiration behind the walk comes from fifth-grader Teresa Thompson, a student at Fitzhugh Park Elementary in Oswego and Deaf Club member. Thompson lives with Type 1 Diabetes.

There is a $5 fee for the walk, or $20 donation for a team of five. Registration opens at the track at 8:30 a.m. on the day of the walk.

Those interested in donating to the cause may visit kidswalk.jdrf.org or contact Oswego County BOCES Deaf and Hard of Hearing teacher Tammy Seymour at tseymour@oswegoboces.org.
